Creating a badge issuer is a simple process:
- Navigate to the 'Issuers' area, located under the 'Badges' side menu option.
- Select the 'Create issuer' button.
- Work through the data areas ('Name', 'Organisation', 'Website', 'Description' and 'Logo') defining and describing your issuer.
- When you are happy with your issuer definition, select the 'Save' button. Once saved, your issuer becomes available to use as part of your badge building process.
For each defined issuer, the Open Badge standard requires an issuer name, description and associated web address. The standard supports the inclusion of an issuer logo, but this is optional.
