Sharing badges from within Canvas

            Although there are different ways users can view badges within Canvas, badge sharing features are only available through the Badges menu in a course.

            1. View and share badges from your course menu

            This is the place to share and interact with badges within Canvas.
            1. To begin, enter the Canvas course where you've been awarded a badge.
            2. Select the badge you want to share to open the Badge view.

            1. Instructors may add the badge as a viewable item in the module and/or to require URL evidence.

            3. View Badges on account profiles
            Please note: You cannot interact or share your badges from your account profile.

            Canvas admins can enable this feature using custom XML. This allows learners to see all badges earned across all Canvas courses in one place. Once the XML is enabled, from the user's Canvas Account, select Profile then My Badges. Badges will be organized by the course in which they were earned.
