Instructors can create opportunities for you to earn recognition for your accomplishments. These opportunities are called achievements. When you complete them, you earn a reward in the form of badges and certificates.
You can see which rewards you've earned and what is required to receive more rewards. You will have insight into the learning progression toward defined competencies. You may be able to publish badges to the Badge Backpack and take evidence of your learning outside of Blackboard Learn.
Instructors choose how you access these achievements:
- Course Tools page
- Tool link on the course menu
- Link in a content area
On the My Achievements page, you can see earned achievements and any unearned achievements that are visible. At the top of the page, you can filter the list of achievements.
If you've earned new achievements since the last time you visited the My Achievements page, a notification appears at the top of the page. When you receive achievement rewards, you'll immediately get a notification at the top of the page you are currently viewing. Students can also see notifications in these areas:
- On the Updates pages
- With the achievement item in the course
An achievement's View Requirements page displays the criteria required to earn the reward and your current progress toward fulfillment. Within an achievement, you can see more information, such as reward details.
You can view and print the certificates your instructor awards to you. For badges you earn, you can view and publish the badges to your Badge Backpacks, if allowed by your instructor and institution. To publish badges, the student email address used for your Badge Backpack must match the one used for Blackboard Learn.
If an instructor chooses to delete an achievement that you earned a reward for, the associated reward will also be deleted.
