  • Talk about Badge competition – some of the higher ed projects that were awarded
  • When we saw proposal immediately thought of our technology skills initiative
  • Many different disparate programs – thought it to join them together through badges (Maybe Mike talks to this slide in his part??)
  • Thinking about it further, realized that a badge initiative could compliment retention efforts on campus
  • Talk about current retention efforts (supported by technology)Tech IDs and user accounts given early, early intro to university's learning platform, placement tests given through university portal, June laptop distribution, scavenger hunt, weekly chat sessions, summer homework, summer reading. Highlight the blog on this slide.

  • LAMP jQuery including UI, timepicker, validate, tablesorter, windowmsg, alerts, sortable, cookies, uploadify, drag-and-drop Bootstrap
  • Badge earners, badge developers, tiered sets of rights to award or modify
  • Registration is handled automatically, with information from our AD system.
  • Assign different levels in the database. Check on login, then on each page load.
  • We want to ensure that students think about this, so we set a cookie. Extensive use of jquery ajax throughout
  • In the future, we might do by-class rankings, so we ask this Scores can be kept private, as can the display of all badges
  • Even with display turned on, they have to allow individual badges to be shown The system defaults to showing less information Ajax toggles.
  • Came up with scenarios Events Points-only Level-ups
  • Based on the OBI specs. We’ve added a few additional items, categories and points. Helps display, and allows for competition
  • Anything can be modified, including the image Or the basics of an existing badge can be cloned, saving time. Can do both without a reload.
  • Create an image or not? Invisible png
  • Searches through the entire user list
  • Drag-and-drop. Logic. Multi-tiered by magic
  • Different ways of distributing them, depending on the context
  • Hyperlink, along with the URL in an IMG tag. QR code can be copied-and-pasted. No antialiasing.
  • Basic “click here” award.
  • You can take this artwork and do whatever with it.
  • A similar name-search function, as on the delegation screen. Or a batch-upload method. Can use either SHU names or SHU IDs, or a mix.
  • Concerned with cheating Each badge has a user/award flag set, so they can’t be clicked repeatedly to run up the score No real solution for sharing, but time limits and natural competitiveness may help.
  • Information about the badge Bake Show
  • Only those allowing scores to be shown are here. Only those allowing image display are links. Your own row is highlighted – it will take you to your profile page.
  • Clicking another user’s name Shows you the badges they allowed to be public Summarizes the rest (so you understand where their score came from)
  • Downloading a properly baked badge What’s a “baked” badge? PNG file, meta data encoded within
  • How jQuery adds links to the “bake” buttons How the .htaccess translates that into an actionable link without multiple query strings
  • The construction of a valid “Assertion” Notice the Evidence and Criteria fields
  • This isn’t ours, but it’s why the whole “baking” thing is necessary. Create an account and log in at openbadges.org/backpack You can upload your badges and organize them here. Share them using the standard sideways-V link
  • Click a badge on the previous page It pulls out the encoded information in the PNG file and displays it
  • What you see when you click on the “Criteria” link
  • What you see when you click “Evidence”
