From a Moodle notification

As soon as you have passed a knowledge test, you will receive a notification from OERu Moodle that you have been awarded a badge. Depending on how you have set up your notification preferences on your OERu Moodle account, you will receive the notification about your badge either within Moodle itself or by email (or both). You can use this notification to view and manage your badges.

  1. Open your notification email (this will come to the email address that you used to register for OERu Moodle)
    Log into and open a list of notifications by clicking on the bell icon at the top right of your screen (circled in green on image below); then click View full notification.
