Open Vs. Closed Badging Systems

Open Vs. Closed Badging Systems | Digital Badges and Professional Credentialing | Scoop.it

Not all digital badges are alike, and that is okay. There is plenty of room for different badge designs and uses. Some worry that people using digital badges as 21st century stickers and gold stars will ruin the enterprise for those of us interested in using them as micro-credentials for substantive (even rigorous) learning contexts. I have no concern about one use diminishing the value of another, at least not when it comes to open badges built around the open badge infrastructure (OBI). OBI helps us address such matters.
