Creating an issuer in Badgr

A badge issuer profile describes an organization or individual responsible for issuing badges. An issuer could represent an individual, a course or instructor, a department, school, or organization. For the next step, see Creating badges as an issuer in Badgr

If you use Badgr for Canvas, the first step to setting Badgr up in your course is to define an issuer profile. The form to define a new profile is available right in the app. If you also have a Badgr account outside of Canvas, you'll see the issuers you've previously defined outside of Canvas as well.
