Badges are fun, collectible, and can reflect what is being learned. Adding badges to Skill Paths, Courses, or Assessments is also a quick way for an Admin to see who has completed what.
You can assign Badges either by using a pre-created, unlinked Badge or a by creating and assigning a custom Badge.
NOTE: Child accounts will not be able to see or use any pre-created Badges. They can, however, create their own.
