P2PU has pioneered the use of badges to recognize skills and projects. We’ve published papers on the subject. Scaled the badge model for a pilot of 500 learners. Won grants for our implementation. But how do badges actually work? And what’s the future of badges at P2PU?
Anyone can create a badge, and we especially encourage course organizers to create badges as part of their course design. If you’re interested in making a badge and would like feedback, check out the rad How Do I Make a Badge? Challenge.
Three Types of Badges.
If you’re participating in a Challenge, badges are integrated within that learning experience. We currently offer 3 different types of badges–they differ in the way they are awarded.
