Activity: Create a New Badge

Badges can be awarded for any activity in Sensei such as enrolling in a course and completing a course, lesson, or quiz.

You can create entirely new Achievement Types that relate to your Sensei learning activities, or use the default “Badges” option available in BadgeOS.  Try creating a new badge for learners who have completed a course by following these steps.

  1. Visit the “Badges” option in the BadgeOS menu.
  2. Click “Add New” at the top of the page to add a new badge.
  3. Use the title field for a Badge name, and the main body area for a badge description. Excerpts are suggested, too.
  4. Under the “Achievement Data” section, be sure you set the “Earned By” menu to Completing Steps.
    Set “Earned by” to Completing Steps.
  5. Scroll down to the “Required Steps” section, and select Add New Step.
  6. From the “Require” pull-down menu, choose Sensei Activity.
  7. Then, choose the Sensei activity that will be a condition for earning the badge. Some options will automatically expose additional menu choices. Decide how many times the activity must be completed (1 time is the default), and optionally add a descriptive label that describes the step (otherwise, the system will auto-generate one for you).

Voila! That’s it.
