Summary

#sxswBadges

Our workshop will provide a solid pedagogical and historical background of badging. We will give hands-on training and help you develop and implement your own badging environment using WordPress. We will explore a hybrid system with automatic badge rewards for certain actions as well as manual awarding for more content based badging.

We will use our experience as instructional designers at the University of Alaska to help you with your system and start badging on your own.
