BadgeOS Group Management Add-on

LICENSE TYPE: INFINITE

Description

The Group Management Add-on for BadgeOS evolved because school districts wanted to build one BadgeOS site, set up various achievements and learning pathways for all students
and give principals and teachers the ability to manage only their students submissions. Group Management allows that!

While this was built specifically for schools we think this can work for any similar large group set up. Think about a company that has multiple departments, managers, and employees.
How about the Girl Scouts or Boy Scouts or 4H? A large group with a state-wide chapter (perhaps), a regional leader (more than likely), and a troop leader (definitely).
With the Group Management add-on your School Admin and Teacher can see all submissions (for verification or approval) and all reports of badges students have earned.
On the back end School Admins and Teachers can also issue to or revoke badges from students in their school or group.

Note: You will need to install the free BadgeOS pluginâ„¢ (version 1.4.8 or higher) to use the BadgeOS Group Management Add-on. You will also need the BuddyPress plugin v1.7 or higher installed.

Get the BadgeOS plugin.

BadgeOSâ„¢ turns your WordPress site into an achievement, badging and engagement management system. Your users complete steps, demonstrate skills and knowledge, and earn digital badges. Easily define the achievements, organize the badge requirements any way you like, and choose from and combine a range of assessment options to determine whether each task or requirement has been achieved.

Create badges and set up the achievements to earn them. Badges are Mozilla OBI compatible and sharable via Credly, the free web service for managing and displaying lifelong credentials.
