Canvas Credentials (Badgr)


Canvas Credentials (formerly Badgr) is a digital badging platform that gives badge creators the opportunity to create and maintain stackable, portable credentials. The University of Arizona uses Canvas Credentials to provide a framework through which University units can create badges based on defined evidence and criteria and then issue the credentials to earners who have met the criteria. Badge earners can claim badges through Canvas Credentials and can then choose to share their badges on social media and resumes.

Note: Badgr was recently acquired by Instructure, and has been renamed to Canvas Credentials. You will notice that name in some of the help documentation, but it does not affect any UArizona accounts.
