  10. 10. Using external reviewers • Distributed reviewing: avoid overloading by using reviewers – solve the bottleneck issue related to reviewing and unlock the potential of badges • Endorsement of reviewers and their organisations • Supports use cases where a badge is recognised and used by several organisations • Badge creators can keep some control on who can review and issue their badges (trusted named persons)
  11. 11. Using peer assessment • Distributed reviewing: avoid overloading of reviewers • A badge becomes more than validated proof of learning. Earners are more than recipients, they are endorsed to be reviewers and issuers • Organic growth of the badge community • Peer assessment is a strong endorsement method (endorsed by a group of reviewers) • Using badges as requirements for reviewing badge applications should increase the quality of badges • You have to trust your badges
