    1. 1. Designing Open Badges and an Open Course to Enhance and Extend Learning Daniel L. Randall J. Buckley Harrison Richard E. West Garrett R. Hickman Brigham Young University
    2. 2. Open Badges
    3. 3. Buckets for Badge System Design New build: The badge system, learning content, and technological platforms are designed simultaneously. Integrated build: The badge system and learning content are co-created and integrated into a pre-existing technological platform. Layered build: The badge system is layered on top of pre-existing learning content and pre-existing technological platform. Responsive build: The badge system responds to pre-existing learning content, and the technological platform does not yet exist, is optional, or is distributed. Badge-first build: The badges are designed first and the learning content and technological platform are designed around the badges. Quoted from Sheryl Grant ‘s 5 Buckets for Badge System Design: "You Are Here.”

    5. 5. Course Description • 1 credit course. Wanted to find a way to extend learning beyond our course. • 3 major projects in which students selected a technology they wanted to learn to fulfill the assignment. • Wanted to better assist students who have differing levels of technological ability.
    6. 6. Designing our Open Badge System
    7. 7. Badge System Adapted from Mozilla Mozilla’s Webmaker badges plan used the “constellation” concept in which smaller badges are earned and added together to receive a higher level badge. Badges image adapted from the Mozilla Open Badges Project. Retrieved from http://erinknight.com/post/29830945702/webmaker-badges on 11/9/12.

Course Level Badge First Iteration: 3 Project Level Badges Technology Integration Project Level Badge Google Sites MovieMaker Student selected Multimedia Technology Lower Level Badges Pages Pages Criteria for Earning Lower Level Badges Student selected Internet Communication Technology Personal Tech Learning iMovie/ Embed Embedding Pro Pre Post Professional PreProduction PostProduction Pro Professional Create basic web page Embed YouTube Video Good choice of theme Select appropriate concept to teach w/ video Add Clips/ Images Embed Google Doc (viewable) Good choice of Color Scheme (if applicable) Concept must connect to Utah Core Split Clip (Do you even do this with iMovie anymore?) Embed Calendar Navigation is Logical Create Storyboard Add Meaningful Narration (can this be done with both programs?) Must include digital images Add Background Music that does not Distract Cuts are in the best place Add and format text Must include some video you filmed Add Transitions Credits move slowly enough to be viewed, all works properly cited Student selected Personal Technologies Choice 3 Must be engaging/ interesting to view Insert Map Choice 2 Choice 3 Audio levels of music, narration and other sound is at appropriate levels (You hear what you’re supposed to be able to hear) Add image Choice 1 Choice 2 Chose appropriate music Create Announcement page Choice 1 Add Links to other sites Add Titles Adjust volume of music/ Narration? Create credits Uploaded to YouTube Higher, culminating badges are earned when the lower level badges they are composed of are earned.

    25. 25. A Look at Our Open Online Course
    26. 26. Why an Open Online Course? Support open education and open access (teaching an online course with materials already developed for our students, so why not share!) Increase recognition of our badge “brand” by further enabling non-BYU students to earn our badges
    27. 27. A Truly Open Course Uses a CC license that allows remixing and sharing Free enrollment and assessment.
    28. 28. Limited but Increased Enrollment • Same amount of BYU students enrolled • Non-university students enrolled to earn badges but not university credit • Limited numbers allowed for instructor (or TA)–learner interactions, such as in online discussions and specific feedback on assignments. • More enrollments will eventually require more TAs
    29. 29. Canvas: Free for Teacher canvas.instructure.com
    30. 30. No multiple choice questions! Quizzes General auto feedback We also provided specific feedback if warranted
    31. 31. Async Video Discussions
    32. 32. Inservice Teachers • Inservice teachers encouraged to enroll because course was free and they could earn badges • The hope was that inservice teachers would interact with our students in discussions on how to integrate technologies in teaching. The result could rich collaboration beneficial to both parties. • Few inservice teachers made it past the first week
    33. 33. Looking Forward
    34. 34. Future Badge Design Iterations • Design of strategy and integration level badges. • Creating pathways for people to earn badges not in our classes, particularly inservice teachers. • Scaling assessment. • Maintaining accuracy of rubrics and tutorials as tools evolve and change. • Creating a smart dashboard management tool for people to log in and track their progression on badges (ala Khan Academy).
    35. 35. Future Badge Research Considerations • Student motivation. How many students will go above and beyond to earn badges? extra badges? Post-class badges? • How useful can this be for teacher inservice professional development? Does it present a solution that will be useful to teachers? • Principal/employer perceptions
    36. 36. Future Open Online Course Iterations • Integrate more elements of the Open Online Course into the IPT EdTec website • Offer the badges in conjunction with inservice teacher professional development credit.
