Badge Builder

Passport contains a flexible badge builder for easy creation of great-looking badges. You are guided step-by-step through the creation process and can select different styles, colors, icons, and text for each badge image. Passport also allows you to upload and use badge images created outside the system.



Passport provides a framework that guides users through learning activities. They are able to review supplemental material, submit content, complete quizzes or surveys, and gather instructor approvals.

Flexible Outcomes-Based Assessment

Tie learning outcomes and assessments together in one flexible platform that empowers users to collect evidence of their learning, both in and out of the classroom.

Connect challenges with course objectives in order to promote successful knowledge and skill mastery. Follow each user's progress and award badges or reset challenge submissions if the first attempt does not meet the objectives.


Passport's scorecard allows you to translate achievements — such as essays, online discussions, blog posts and video demonstrations — into a numeric-based evaluation system for grading purposes.




Award users a badge for successful completion of learning activities and assignments. You can also create and award special achievement badges without assignments attached.
