When CTP was launched it was a training program which came with badges which were designed to add an element of fun while encouraging learning through gamification.
The badges were controversial from the start…some people took to them immediately while others resisted and dismissed them as a fad, a gimmick and some sort of misguided childish foolishness.
I remember people saying they would never catch on, that they were pointless and even a stupid waste of time.
Well when I last looked the number of badges which had been claimed stood at 19,436,282.
By my roughest or rough calculations I think we should hit the 20 million mark towards the later end of next week…possibly on Friday or Saturday.
Not bad going for stupid, childish badges eh?
