Kristen Linton, Instructor from California State University, Channel Islands, created two Badges in Canvas associated with specific learning outcomes and career skills. Eligibility to receive the badges was set using a rubric that assessed the students' skill, which is public. Students who receive badges can post the badge to the LinkedIn profiles and potential employers can click it to see a description of the assignment and criteria that needed to be met in order to receive the badge.
