   this is a new feature

   - task inline badge submissions
   http://alpha.p2pu.org/en/groups/test-webmaking-101-4/content/task3/ -
   this is a new feature

   - Can we inline challenges into standard course tasks?

   - Can we integrate the 'good feedback' badge into task discussion posts?

   - Similarly, the "publishing" badge would be helpful to affirm
   participants' efforts in courses. This badge exists.

   - Zuzel ->

   - Sections displaying info about badges inside the challenges needs to
   be extended to be available for courses

   - We need to decide how the association of badges/courses will happen at
   a bigger scale:

   - have some badges that are associated to all courses by default

   - implement the UI for courses to choose a subset of the available badges

   - In the case of the Publishing Badge it is a badge awarded for being
   able to install an FTP or SFTP client, upload content that is visible live
   in a browser.

   - Another name, description and image will be needed for badges to
   affirm participants efforts in courses
