  23. 23. Moodle as Issuer, Mahara as Displayer Technical Deliverables Overview 1. Rewrite Certificate module, dispense Open Badge PNGs instead of PDF files. 2. Web service approach (using Moodle‟s web services API) will enable any displayer to verify badges issued by a specific Moodle site. (including social media). 3. Create a new block for Moodle that users will be able to place badges on their profile page. 4. Use the Moodle Portfolio API to push badges to Mahara. 5. New Mahara blocks display either a single badge or a collection of badges. New portfolio „artefact‟ will be created so that PNG files that have badge metadata will be identified as badges (and available to be selected by the new block). 6. Verification – separate library, permissive license (e.g. Apache v2)Source: In alpha as of Feb 8, 2013!Richard Wyles, MaharaUK12
