BadgeOS Customization


Example of BadgeOS Customization

BadgeOS back-end extensions enable an infinite number of new achievement possibilities. Together with front-end theme development, BadgeOS lets you craft an experience all your own.

BadgeOS is an operating system for encouraging, assessing and rewarding achievement and engagement. Built from the ground up to be flexible and infinitely expandable, BadgeOS can adapt to the needs of a wide range of environments and scenarios.

It is being used as the basis for experiences at places such as: museums, fitness centers, learning centers, K-12 and higher education learning institutions, online programs, MOOCs and online communities of practice.
