Badges are a good way of celebrating achievement and showing progress. Badges may be awarded based on a variety of chosen criteria and are fully compatible with the Open Badges 2.0 Standard. Badges created in Moodle may be displayed on a user's profile or pushed to an Open Badges backpack and public badge collections in their backpack will display in their Moodle profile.

There are two categories of badges:

  • Site badges - available to users site-wide and related to the site wide activities, like finishing a set of courses.
  • Course badges - available to users enrolled in the course and related to the activities that happen inside the course.
