We need to take the next step in the badges and permissions system. Originally, the idea was that badges are awarded based on activities (you upload 10 datasets? bam, you got yourself a special badge for that achievement), a la Stackoverflow. This system is partially built. However, now that we have the data processing course we see that badges != permissions. In this case, we have people who may be new to all this who start the data uploading course. And to do that course, they need to be able to process data even though they may not yet have all the badges.
We should not have a system to add badges to them by hand, as badges should really only be awarded if the achievement was really reached. However, we can manage permissions separate from badges, which I have already been starting to do. So we need a separate permission for "USER MAY PROCESS DATA", which in this case we should be able to add in a relatively easy way so that we can quickly grant the students this permission.
