I figured out that by creating multiple badges with specific types of thinking involved made it impossible to simply master a standard and sit back, but rather accumulating badges made up for quality AND quantity."

Concludes Sitter:

" ... Credly is a great site to build your own badges and give it a go. I promise you'll love it, and so will your students!"
