Hi @TopLineFounder, congratulations on publishing your first course! The Highest Rated badge calls out to students that this particular course has highest course rating within a particular Topic-Category combination (e.g., Python - Development, Python - Business, Yoga - Personal Development, Yoga - Health & Fitness). Additionally, there're other contributing factors that go into earning each badge. You can check them out here. If you still feel this doesn't address your question, be sure to reach out firstname.lastname@example.org and the team will gladly provide further details.
That said, would you mind removing the course link from your post? We're very careful to keep the community free of any type of course promotions. Thanks! 🙂
