Open badges

  1. 1. Learning happens everywhere.But its often difficult to get recognition for skills and achievements that happen online or out of school. Open Badges are an attempt to solve thatproblem, allowing any organization to issue, manage and display digital badges across the web.

  3. 3. What is a badge and how does it work?• An image embedded with metadata (sharable across the web)• Metadata links to webpages, detailing who issued the badge, and what the learner has done• Can include examples of work, i.e., portfolio
