As badges are currently kind of the hot thing, I am looking at utilizing them on our Moodle. We are a distance learning program for Iowa HS students that works in conjunction with local districts. We provide the teacher and course, the local district provides an onsite student coach.
We currently do not have an evaluation system in place for our coaches. I would like to develop a badge system in Moodle to recognize our coaches achievments. This would serve two functions: to track coach progress and to act as a recognitiion system to motivate the coaches.
Any ideas on how I can get that started in a well developed Moodle environment?
