In Progress This is a sample toolkit, created to test out the toolkit design and workflow.

Introduction

This toolkit will guide you through the process of setting triggers for your badge. Badge triggers are the required steps that you set in order for a participant to earn a badge. These steps can include:

  • The completion of an activity (e.g. quiz, comments, logins, etc.)
  • The number of times the activity must be completed (e.g. 4 comments)
  • The grade or points needed for the badge to be issued (e.g. 80% on Module 1 quiz.)
  • The number of activities completed for the badge to be issued (e.g. 5 quizes, 4 comments and two posts, etc.)

You should already have your badge trigger map from the “Getting Started” toolkit. Your map should reflect the learning pathway you have designed and the type of engagement you expect from the badge earners.
