Add an Award to Your Course

The Awards tool enables instructors to issue badges and certificates to recognize student achievements. Use this tool to reward students and introduce an element of gamification to your course (e.g., reward obtaining a high score, submitting a discussion post, helping classmates). A library of awards will be available for faculty to use in their courses. The awards can be released manually or based on release conditions.
