How to join and post evidence to this micro-credential badge

Micro-credentials in the SIM series enable teachers to verify skills in delivering instruction of the SIM Learning Strategies and Content Enhancement Routines and other educational programs offered through the University of Kansas Center for Research on Learning. To earn the micro-credential badge:

  • Post your evidence specified in the “Required Evidence” section by clicking on the blue “Post” buttons, or you can click into the Evidence section and post from there.

Technical Tips

Badge List provides a place to organize evidence of your work.  You may choose to type that evidence directly into a “Required Evidence” section (as when you post t a description or narrative about your work), but much of your evidence will be stored elsewhere (longer documents, video, pdf documents, images, spreadsheets, etc.) and linked into your badge.   

Video:  Upload video to a cloud-hosting site like Vimeo, or YouTube using privacy settings that provide a private link to view the video, keeping it unlisted on the public website.  You will then post the link to that video in the evidence section, along with any comments you wish to include.  

Documents, Image files, spreadsheets, PDF files, etc: 
 You will upload your document, image file, pdf, spreadsheet, etc. to a cloud-hosting site. You will then post the link in the evidence section, along with any comments you wish to include.  We have found Google Drive to be a really simple tool for accomplishing this, but Drop Box or File Dropper or any file storage site that gives you a link to your file works.    

To use Google Drive
 to post documents, images , spreadsheets, pdf, etc.: 
  • Open Google Drive
  • Hit the red “New” button
  • Select “File Upload” and choose the file you wish to upload
  • Click on “Share”
  • Get Shareable Link
  • Paste the link into your evidence section along with any comments you wish to include.
