Set up your Badge Activities in Google Folders as follows:
- You should have a Google Drive Folder titled Your Badge Pathway (Example “SciCom Badge” or “Social Justice Badge” that contains three (3) subfolders called Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3.
- Put each separate activity in a separate document. Note: Summary/responses are one (1) activity.
- Make sure each file is named with a description of the activity (i.e. “TED Talk Summary of Clarke” or “Freewrite on Social Justice.”
- The permissions on all folders should be set so that ANYONE (not just anyone in the University of Rhode Island) with the link can view.
- The permission of all documents should be set so that anyone can comment.
- Make sure your name and the names of any collaborators are listed on all documents. Note: If you would like to protect your anonymity on the web, please use a pseudonym in your Google Documents. Email me with your chosen pseudonym and use the same pseudonym for Credly.
Set up a Credly account
- Make an individual account on Credly.com with either your URI email address or a personal address. Again, you welcome to choose a pseudonym to protect your anonymity on the web.
- Save your username and password in a safe location.
- Click the link in your email to activate that account. <– Don’t skip this step!
- Input the correct claim code for your badge. The claim code is available in the badging pathway. Make sure to use the correct instructor.
- Go back to your main Badge Pathway folder (not the subfolders) and copy the weblink. (Go to “share” and “get sharable link”).
- Under “attach evidence,” click on the link button and paste a link to your main badging pathways folder (not the subfolder) so that you are submitting all folders and documents as evidence for claiming the badge.
- Click on “claim this credit.”
- Note: Social Justice badgers have 48 hours after their teach-in to submit their materials for the Cred.ly applications. Students on the B pathway have until October 26 at noon to submit their first badge.
