Students have a particular liking for badges which they can flaunt to others. A badge is like a special privilege that all can see. I earned my badge after completing a MOOC session, although whether I will wear this badge is doubtful, but then for students at least it is about making the reward more attractive than just a certificate which will be put away in a folder or portfolio once it has been earned!
