A digital badge is a token that can be awarded by an instructor to recognize a particular achievement. They are often used to recognize a competency or skill, a character quality, or completion of a task. Badging is used to motivate learning and acknowledge achievement. Badges in Canvas appear as icons on the participants profile.
