Incorporating Open Badges into a Hybrid Course Context | Dan Hickey

Incorporating Open Badges into a Hybrid Course Context | Dan Hickey | Badges for Lifelong Learning | Scoop.it

In this post I want to describe how I used ForAllBadges (from ForAllSystems, a small Chicago firm) to issue digital badges within a typical online course management system (CMS).  Anyone who wants to issue badges that comply with Mozilla’s Open Badge Infrastructure (OBI) can easily sign up for a free account athttp://www.forallbadges.com/. ; The account can be used as a stand-alone site, or it can be accessed from within any CMS that lets you access outside websites.  I am using OnCourse, the Sakai-based open-source CMS that Indiana University helped develop.

The Community Course: An Alternative to the MOOC

The Community Course: An Alternative to the MOOC | Badges for Lifelong Learning | Scoop.it

The Study Group Leaders are gearing up for next week’s launch of the CoI Teaching Excellence Community Course. I have created a full guide for their reference, including a task outline, task specifics, and a weekly checklist to follow.

 

The Study Group Leaders have joined the CTL Community Course team and are just as excited as I am to see this endeavor take flight (you can expect a few aviation references along the way!). Each of the Study Group Leaders will be responsible for facilitating the discussion forum learning activities, and monitoring the effective practice compendium areas.

 

We’ve created 25 Study Group sites in Sakai and will register our faculty Community Course participants across the group sites). I have taken a peek into some of the Study Group sites already, and am thrilled at how the Study Group Leaders have already applied personal touches to the pre-populated announcement areas. Great work all around!

 

We’ve also invited a team from Institutional Research to participate in our Community Course. They work with the CoI research data, and can benefit from experiencing what the faculty will be going through as they learn more about applied CoI effective practices. The data team has a Study Group cohort of their own, with forum questions related to how the content applies to the work that they’re doing.
