How do I add Roll Call Attendance badges to an account?

You can add badges at the account level that appear to all instructors with courses under that account. These badges appear in the Roll Call Attendance tool. It can be helpful to create account-level badges when you want all your instructors to track a  particular behavior or achievement among their students.

Instructors can also create their own badges within their courses. However, you can manage badges within a course at any time.
