  • 7. Kyle Peck Professor of Education / Research Fellow Co-Director, Center for Online Innovation in Learning Penn State University “…If the US Department of Education has announced its support of the badging concept (which it has), as have other government agencies (NASA, NSF, NOAA, and others) and if open badges are going to be a valid alternative to or eventually a replacement for transcripts, wouldn't it make sense for there to be an archive? I know that it would not make sense for many badges (of the social type for example), but I believe that it would make sense for serious badges documenting learning. When the Mozilla project was announced I thought that it would include such an archiving service, but it did not. I talked with someone at Mozilla about that (Sunny? Erin?) and it was suggested that that sort of service might better be provided by an organization like Penn State. As the Open Badges group has determined, it seems that it should be up to the provider to provide the data about the badges, and it should be up to the badge holder to offer his or her record to the archive. Is it just me, or would a national repository/archive where records of badges and providers as well as badges issued would be preserved? Source:!topic/openbadges/ Mozilla OpenCall 78/21/2013
