Badgr is coming! We're retiring Canvabadges starting the week of April 30. But never fear: we'll migrate every Canvabadges user and all of their badges to Badgr. Badgr is free to use and offers awesome features like a built-in leaderboard.
The Badgr team will present a webinar about how we're migrating everybody, how to get setup with Badgr for Canvas, and what Badgr can do. Register for the May 2nd webinar here!
Canvabadges will no longer be available after October 1, 2018.
Canvabadges lets you award badges to students in courses based on their total grade in the course and their completion of course modules. You can also put a manual approval step on as well that requires your final sign-off before they receive the badge.
NOTE: Students do not earn badges automatically, they must launch the Canvabadges link in modules after completing criteria in order to be awarded the badge.

Lots of schools will probably want to host their own badge issuing server, so the domain matches their school (i.e. badges.utah.edu instead of canvabadges.herokuapp.com). Good news! You can now do that with Canvabadges! Just follow these directions on getting a custom domain configured. Or you can also run the code yourself.
