    Thanks Jouni for sharing this plugin with the community, and sorry for the delay in the review and approval process. The code looks sane and cleanly structured, well done on that. You are cleared to land now, welcome to the Plugins directory!

    Hi Jouni, I was wondering if this plugin enables me to create a 'badge of badges', i.e., a badge awarded upon achievement of X amount of other badges?

    Hi Virginia,

    Currently that is not possible from within the moodle plugin/environment. However you could create a Milestone badge in, and set the badge to be awarded after X amount of select badges. The Open Badge Factory would then issue the milestone badge when X amount of badges have been issued through the plugin and/or other methods.
