Treehouse Badges on LinkedIn

Hi guys. Did anyone of you add your "Badges" to LinkedIn? And if so, how?

Thanks.

There is a discussion about this - search for:

Displaying Treehouse Badges All Over "the Net"

Bottom line: There is not a way currently to display them unless you manually list them out yourself.

Hi. By adding my profile url into my summary, I have a link to my profile from within linked in. And it automatically gave the link a decent size image so it's noticeable.

There is a plugin for Wordpress to display your badges, but that's all I know off :)

I know this is an old post, but I am going to wade in. I got an email today from Codeschool today (not a paying customer, did use the free trial though) which says that they are adding the ability to publish completed courses (I assume that might be the same as tracks?) to Linkedin. This would be a great thing for Treehouse to do.

If Codeschool was doing this three months ago, I would hope Treehouse is at least working on it by now. I hope.

That would be very cool if Treehouse had a way to link badges to Linkedin. I know this thread has been around for sometime now, is this something that Treehouse is working on? I hope so!

Definitely want this, Team Treehouse. As the best online coding outlet... Hook it up!

Yes treehouse please do this

agree! please do this

Also, new to treehouse (actually using it to subsidize my learning at FLATIRON school. Do people in general display their badges on their personal websites? Trying to figure out if badges are more of a fun feel good thing for my progress - or an actual respected proof of work for companies hiring?

Taking certificate classes from Oracle and they are using Acclaim https://www.youracclaim.com/ to issue badges that can be used on Facebook and LinkedIn as well as added to resumes. Really hoping Tree House can incorporate a similar system to give proper credit to their community of hardworking students..

I hope this becomes a feature.
