Badging: Self-Enrollment in a Canvas Badging Course

Our St. Thomas Badgr digital badges are anchored in Canvas (LMS) courses. Many of our digital badges are of the self-enroll type. This article explains how to self-enroll in a Canvas Badging course and how to un-enroll from a Canvas badging course that you were manually added to.
