It’s about the journey AND the destination.
The world’s chaos has a way of pulling students in different directions. So it’s important to help them maintain a clear vision of where they’ve been and where they’re going on their learning journeys—up to graduation and beyond.
We needed a way for students to showcase the skills they’ve gained and the experiences that developed them. Mapping the program to Canvas Student Pathways has been the perfect way to do this.

Give students a clearer path to success.
Automatic Digital Badges
Studies suggest students miss claiming up to 90% of their badges and ignore 54% of their emails. Canvas Student Pathways automatically issues badges and showcases them on students' digital portfolios.
Accomplishments for Life
Provide students with a lifelong digital portfolio where they can store and showcase earned badges, pathways, coursework, and portfolios with peers, mentors, and potential employers.
Each student has a unique, stackable pathway that shows them exactly where they are in their learning process, what they're working to accomplish, and how each step along the way contributes to a greater goal.
Students can attach photos and examples of their coursework directly to a badge. This shows observers like potential employers the earning paths, milestones, and requirements behind each badge.
Custom Digital Badges
Create your own custom digital badges to be issued at set milestones and accomplishments throughout students’ independent paths.
Create motivation with intentional student pathways.
Students should know right where they are in their learning process, what they’re trying to accomplish, and how each step contributes to a greater goal. Canvas Student Pathways helps them view and achieve their own milestones through their own pathways. Instructors can incorporate co-curricular planning and assessment into any pathway—and build program pathways, first-year experience pathways, and more.
Show students where they are and where they’re going.
See how each step contributes to their greater goals.
Display milestones in custom, stackable earning pathways.
Issue digital badges with individualized artifacts.
Canvas Student Pathways helps institutions issue verified badges backed by authentic assessment of coursework and co-curricular work samples. Allow your students to attach photos, samples, and examples of their coursework to each badge. This facilitates reflection and improved articulation of the acquired skills and competencies—and lets everyone see the meaning behind each badge.
In the first 12 months, students posted more than 115,000 artifacts of their work. In the process they regularly are thinking about the competencies that they are acquiring and why it matters to potential employers.
