If you are trying to create a pathway and can't find the badge you want to use under My Badges or from the (badge) Directory results, you may add any Open Badge by importing the badge using the "Add external badge" feature in Pathways.
Badges may originate from any platform as long as they comply with the Open Badges standard. Non-Badgr badges can only be added as Required Badges on a pathway.
Adding an External Badge
To use the "Add External Badge" feature, click on an element on your pathway and choose "Add Required Badge."
A new sidebar will appear with an option to "Add External Badge" appearing at the bottom.
Select the "Add External Badge" button.
The "Add External Badge" sidebar will open allowing users to upload a PNG or SVG file containing their badge image and metadata. Or, under "Advanced Options" users can upload their badge via URL or JSON.
Users may upload a badge that has not yet been awarded or a badge that has been awarded.
By having the "Add to Badge Directory" box checked, the uploaded badge will be added to BadgeRank and users will be able to search the Directory in Pathways for the badge. If the badge is already in the Directory, a new version will not be created.
