Whatever institution you gain badges through will have a place for you to log in and see the badges you have earned, however you might want to manage them in one central place online. You can export each of your badges into your own personal Mozilla Backpack.

Step 1: Create your own personal Mozilla Backpack account, for this you can use a personal email address or your Derby University email address.
