Badge created by:
10 February 2014
This badge relates to the H818 conference programme (see http://cloudworks.ac.uk/cloudscape/view/2945)
You can apply for this badge, if you have submitted comments on at least 5 different
presentations within the H818 online conference. These should be
substantive comments providing evidence of peer support for the presenter (e.g.
feedback, queries or suggestions).
NOTE: You will need to login to apply for this badge. Your comments will show in the cloudstream within your profile so you need to copy that URL (web address) into the evidence field. Your badge request is then pended until the Conference Organiser or Module Team have checked that the quantity and quality of messages is sufficient. It will then be awarded. (Hint; You can find your profile page by searching for your name or clicking on your name link in Cloudworks).
Applying for a badge
Once you have decided that you want to work towards a particular badge, make a note of the criteria and begin work.
This may mean engaging in a course or activity. The badge issuer may have been quite specific about how you could provide evidence, but if they haven't, you must decide how best to do it. Your evidence might consist of a reflective blog post, or a photo, a document, a diagram, a screen shot, or an activity stream and you will need to be able to link to all your evidence via one URL - so it needs to be held online somewhere.
If you have a number of different pieces of evidence that you want to submit, the easiest way of doing this is to set up a Cloud. Use the text box to describe your evidence and how it meets the criteria and then 'Add content', 'Add embedded content' or 'Add link' for as many pieces of evidence as you need. Then copy and paste the URL for you evidence Cloud into this page.
