  • People like badges.
  • OB Background■ Learners are learning everywhere – But most of that learning doesn’t “count”.■ Skills assessment and communication is limited in current system.■ Few alternatives to the current accreditation/credentialing system.
  • OB Goals■ Develop badges as an alternative (micro-)accreditation/(micro-)credentialing system.■ Avoid silos. Support badges from multiple issuers across the web.■ Optimize value: make badges remixable and shareable with different audiences/sites.■ Develop an open and decentralized supporting infrastructure to give learners control of the entire ecosystem.

  • Issuers■ Organization, consortium or individual who issues badges into the OBI.■ Issuer issues a badge on their site, then prompts the Badge Earner to push the badge into their Backpack.■ Issuer badge systems are independent of the Infrastructure.

  • “Badges are notassessments. — David Wiley
  • Badge Earner■ A person storing their badges within the OBI.■ The Earner has interactions with Issuers to earn badges, then can manage and share the badges in their Backpack out to various Display sites.■ Learners are a type of Badge Earners.
  • Badge Backpack■ An authorized data storage plus a management interface (control, share) for Earners.■ Open source and federated – anyone can take the code and fork it.■ Mozilla is building a reference or default Backpack.
  • Badge■ A single credential demonstrating a skill, achievement, quality or affiliation.■ More than a static image or button: its value comes from the information or metadata attached to it.
  • Badge – inside■ A JSON blob of metadata embedded in a PNG file (“Badge Baking”). ‣ Easily portable, an actual “thing” that can be emailed around carrying all the information with it. ‣ Important for decentralization, so that Earners have more control.
  • Badge – metadata■ Who issued the badge.■ The issue date.■ How the badge was earned.■ Hyperlinks back to artifacts, documents, or testimonials demonstrating the work that lead to earning the badge.■ Authentication back to the issuer.
  • Verification■ “Did the Issuer issue this badge?”, “Is it still valid or has it expired?”, etc.■ Verification happens between the Displayer and the Issuer.■ Hosted Assertions: metadata points to a URL that the Displayers can ping.■ In the future OBI will support Signed Assertions.
  • Displayers■ Display of badges is where a significant part of the value lies: badges are not siloed or stuck within one site.■ Earner controls through the Backpack where badges are displayed.■ Earners can also make badges public and discoverable through the Earner’s email address.
  • Identity■ Identity is a critical part of the OBI.■ Identity needs to be open and decentralized.■ How? Persona, fka BrowserID. browserid.org wiki.mozilla.org/Identity ‣ People understand email address ■ They don’t understand OpenID
  • Conclusions (1)■ Anyone can issue accreditations about anything.■ People can keep their own backpacks full of credentials. ‣ Access & display control. ‣ Attached to detailed accreditation info and evidence. ‣ Linked back to issuers.
  • “Compared with the new openbadge systems, the standardcollege transcript looks like asad and archaic thing.— The Chronicle of Higher Education
  • Conclusions (2)■ OBI as an open infrastructure for presentation portfolios.■ OBI separates the credentialing and teaching functions of higher education.■ What about assessment?
  • “…no one is paying sufficientattention to the gap betweenlearning anything anywhere (OER)and receiving a recognition (OBI)– this gap is called “assessment.” — David Wiley
  • “…many in the field are overlookingthe place where badges make themost sense of all – the formalhigher education institution. — David Wiley
  • Moodle & Mahara■ Totara Learning Solutions will be developing an Open Badges solution for Moodle and Mahara. ‣ Moodle as Issuer. ‣ Mahara as Displayer.
