D2L Awards - About Awards and How to View

Learn about the Awards tool and how to view your awards.

About Awards

The Awards tool enables learners to see merit-based awards granted by instructors of a course. There are two types of awards: Badges and Certificates.

Badges are awarded based on any criteria determined by the instructor. They are meant to provide digital markers that represent accomplishment throughout a course or program. An instructor might create a badge that is based on posting 15 discussion posts in the first month of a course, or on perfect attendance, or on academic excellence.

Certificates are also awarded based on criteria determined by the instructor. Certificates are similar to Badges, however, they include a PDF that learners can print. Certificates typically indicate an official statement of certification or award at the end of a program, but can be awarded during the course for other criteria as well. 

You can see the awards you have been granted as well as the available awards that you can earn in your course by selecting Awards on the navbar from within your course.
