Adding badges to a Degreed profile

PLEASE NOTE: If Degreed asks for a “Badge URL (ending in .json),” Badgr has a “View JSON” button on the page where the JSON URL may be copied from the browser's address bar. Although you may paste either URL into Degreed, we recommend pasting the regular URL, not the JSON URL. This difference is that when accessing the badge later using the regular URL, you can see all the badge data, not just the machine-readable badge verification code.
