Student badges released!

Today we are pleased to release a new zondle feature in the form of student badges.  Now you can reward your students for good effort by awarding them badges on zondle.

Badges come in a number of flavours:

  • Zondle badges. These are the badges that we have created.  If you want any more added to the collection we are more than happy to create them for you.  Just let us know what you’d like to see in there.

  • My badges. You can create your own badges to match the exact needs of your students.  Just upload a square image and zondle will do the rest for you.

  • My friends’ badges.  Instantly get access to badges your friends have created on zondle and use them to reward your students as well.

  • Other Teachers’ badges.  You can use any badges created by other teachers on zondle if you wish.  So as time goes on you should have access to a lot of possible badges!

The following video shows how you can award badges to your students.  One thing we missed in this video is that you can also award badges to students directly from the new gradebook.

We hope this is useful and, of course, look forward to any feedback you may have.
