BadgeOS Suggested Achievements Add-on

Description

A widget that allows the site creator to display badge activities or achievements available to be completed. As activities are completed they are removed from the list.

Site participants have a perpetual view of achievements still to be completed. Using a widget, this is an easy way for administers to guide participants to new activities.

Note: You will need to install the free BadgeOS plugin™ (version 1.4.8 or higher) to use the BadgeOS Community Add-on. You will also need the BuddyPress plugin v1.7 or higher installed.

Get the BadgeOS plugin.

BadgeOS™ 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.

Reviews

Simple and effective

Does what it says it does. Not a lot of options but then again I guess there doesn’t need to be.

Took a little while to work out that it’s added to a page via a widget. A shortcode would be a great addition.

Here’s an example of where it is (the white box on the right. Sorry it’s behind a login wall but it’s a free account if you’re keen to see what it looks like.
