Using Badges to Encourage Student Engagement

Presented By
Djuana Lamb-Morrison, Lecturer of Human Resource and Business Management
LoShon Harvey, Blackboard Training & Support Specialist

In this session we will share the experience and feedback from students who have earned badges as they completed a series of assignments in an online class and highlight the impact the badge earning process had on them. Research shows that badges increase engagement. We explored it in my MGT 4345 online class.

We will also do a quick demonstration of how you can add badges and achievements into your own Blackboard course.
