The first image is an early depiction of a badge with no strands earned. To the right is shown the result of clicking on the "empty" Eastern quadrant of the badge. It displays the cultural meanings of the Eastern portion of the medicine wheel and gives background information on earning an Eastern strand by providing links to the resource Web site. It also provides links to sample strands earned by others.

The lower half of the image shows the badge with an Eastern strand earned. Clicking on the quadrant reveals the title as chosen by the learner, the learning goals of producing this creative offering, and a link to the actual creative work. In this case the learner chose to host the content on their personal blog.
The second image shows a compilation of the steps in getting information about strands and submitting creative works as "gifts" to the community. It begins with the Earthworks Resources site and provides background information on earning strands. Earners post their creative submission as a gift which in turn is reviewed by mentors and crowd-sourced reviewers. If worthy, the strand is bestowed (earned).
