HOW DO BADGES IN MOODLE WORK? • Students can see what badges are available for their module from the menu on the Moodle course homepage. • When the linked activity is completed (or the badge is manually awarded), the student receives an email notification (and a message within the Moodle messaging system also appears). The message wording can be customised for each badge. A link to further information in Moodle can be included.
