One of the first steps in setting up your Openbadges.me account is to create your users and setup your organisation. These two areas provide the basic framework for your badging activity.
Organisations and Groups
We will start with creating an organisation. To create your organisation, click the “Organisation/Groups” in the left-hand menu. When you add an organisation, you will need to enter a name and a description such as “Openbadges” and then a brief description of the company.
If you want to create sub-sections of your organisation, then you can do so with groups. For example, you may want to have system users from different departments such as Human Resources, Marketing, Training etc. If you have different badging initiatives like a membership group and then a training program group, you can also separate the admin activity this way as well.
Adding groups is entirely optional but it can make the badging area a little simpler. However, if you don’t have many admin users and don’t want to create recipient accounts then you may find that only creating an organisation is enough.
