  1. If you want to award the Digital Badges in the Pgh City of Learning platform, you need to be invited by a super-user administrator. The super-user administrator is one who already has a username and password at the site and can give privileges to others. At the outset, that was Adam Majewski and Mark Rauterkus. An email is generated by the system as an invite to join with some clicks and then you pick your own password. Later, you'll need to remember that password you've selected to log into the system.
  2. Log into
    1. Students log into the web site on the home page.
    2. Admin sign into the site on a different page.
    3. Often, the admin log-in process takes two attempts. First, a blank screen appears and then nothing. But the second time the email and password is entered it works.
  3. Select the organization, BGC, in the top right drop down menu.
  4. Find the badge that you wish to award in the lower left quadrant of the screen.
  5. Click on the small blue chevron (arrow) next to the badge to expand the options.
  6. Select the blue "award badge" option.
  7. Check the empty box next to the student's name getting the badge.
  8. Check each empty box to designate the requirements were met and criteria accomplished in earning that digital badge.
    • Read and verify that all of these requirements were met.
  9. Upload either a file or URL as evidence of completion, depending on the requirements of the badge.
    • Some badges require wiki entries and links.
    • Upload a photo for some of the badges without a meaningful bit of evidence. Show the student demonstrating a bit of the skills involved. #* A note from the coach or teacher can serve as witness too.
  10. Click the Save button.
