Issue badges from Acclaim upon edx course completion.

Acclaim Badges for EDX

Overview

Adds a djangoapp to edx which provides a UI and API backend into Acclaim. Once installed, EDX adminstrators will be able to add Acclaim auth tokens and select badges to be issued upon course completion. This app then listens for course complete events, and issues badges if the student obtains a passing score.

Install

  1. Install “acclaim_badges” using pip:

    pip install acclaim_badges
    
  2. Add “acclaim_badges” to your INSTALLED_APPS setting for EDX lms like this:

    INSTALLED_APPS = [
        ...
        'acclaim_badges',
    ]
    

Note: this file is usually located at /edx-platform/lms/envs/common.py

  1. Include the acclaim_badges URLconf in your project urls.py like this:

    urlpatterns += (
        url(r'^acclaim/', include('acclaim_badges.urls')),
    )
    
  2. The authorization token field is encypted. create a AES-256 keyset using keyzar:

    $ mkdir fieldkeys
    $ keyczart create --location=fieldkeys --purpose=crypt
    $ keyczart addkey --location=fieldkeys --status=primary --size=256
    
  3. Add keyset location to /edx-platform/lms/envs/common.py:

    ENCRYPTED_FIELDS_KEYDIR = '/path/to/fieldkeys'
    
  4. Run ./manage.py lms syncdb --settings aws to create the acclaim_badges lms app.

Usage

The following useful URLs are made available after installation: /acclaim/tokens/ /acclaim/badge-courses/

  1. Add Acclaim organization and authorization token using /acclaim/tokens/
  2. Define a mapping between badge and course by accessing /acclaim/badge-courses/

Note: when defining a mapping, the dropdown will populate with badge templates if the Acclaim API call is successful (valid token and orgainzation combination are used).
