Great to have seen this feature finally make core. Awesome work and a huge congrats to all who worked on it.= )
Thought I would start a tread on a feature request I am thinking of to see if there is enough traction. If so, I'll add it to the tracker for voting.
I do like the My page implementation to display badges awarded. But I think for many this seperates the awarding to far from the implementation itself in the course.
I am suggesting a course orientated block that will show all badges currently awarded in the current course only. It would also provide a link to the main My Badges page for the bigger picture. This way a teacher could choose to add a block allowing students to see an up to date snapshot of awards they have received for their current course.
I have attached a basic mockup of my idea. I think it would be realtively simple to implement.
Thoughts? Ideas? Improvements? Don't keep them to yourself. Post here and let's get the discussion moving.
