            Adding Badgr to an individual Canvas course

            The process for installing Badgr at the course, sub-account or root level are similar. Most users choose to install Badgr at the sub-account or root level of their Canvas instance. 

            1. Enable Badgr in all courses across the sub-account or account, enabled by default.
              1. May also be configured to hide Badgr by default, so teachers can enable it when they are ready.
            2. Place a "My Badges" navigation menu item on Canvas profiles.
            Some Canvas servers may need pre-authorization to connect with Badgr.

            Watch a quick video and/or follow the instructions below.

            To add Badgr to an individual course in Canvas

            2. Select "Account" from the menu in the upper right. Then select "App Integrations."
