The badges look nice, will they be issued weekly, or at the end please?

Thank you Elizabeth. I am not one for displaying certificates, but on the other hand if people want to see my full Moodle profile it's nice to be able to show them my badges - rather like the old trade union tradition of wearing a shop steward's badge or safety rep's badge on your suit/ denim jacket etc.

What should we do if our Backpack is registered to a different email address than the one we are using for this course?

I'm not sure, but I'll ask the Badge Guru and get back to you...

I don't think badges are transferable between accounts—sorry.

We can issue you with one to your preferred email address — email us at support@openbrookes.net with the details.

To prevent further confusion it might be better to change your email on the site to the one you would like badges to be awarded with.

cheers

Add another email address to your backpack, then when you claim the badge, by clicking on the link in the email you can log in to your backpack and then  just select the email address you want to associate with the badge.

Make sure you add it to a collection though if you want it to be visible :-)

Thanks everyone.

I went with having a two email addresses in Persona and now my Backpack effectively has two 'pockets' (I use the different email addresses for different kinds of courses.)

Nowhere to display these but keep collecting them just in case.

Hi,

I have completed all the badge activities to date but did not click the check box at the time.  There does not seem to be an option to now tick the check box??  I would like to demonstrate the collection of badges to a group so it would be nice to have more than one (just claimed one today).  Is there any way of ensuring I collect all?

Thanks

Hi Orla

Yes, just tick the boxes from now on, and I'll award you the ones that have already gone when I'm back at my desk tomorrow.

(For everyone else: if you'd like to claim a badge after we've awarded them, just drop me an email at ejlovegrove@brookes.ac.uk, and I'll manually award the badge.)

Liz.
