Potentially, this looks quite interesting.  Freemium model, the free version looks robust enough to at least evaluate the product adequately.  Interesting that they suggest contacting them for details on LMS integration among other things.

Fiona Harvey's insight:

If you are interested in creating and using Digital Badges for your students this would be a good place to start (specifically focused on UK but can be adapted) The whole site is useful, has links to others.  I was looking for information about Employers and what they thought about Digital Badges.  It's a no brainer to me as I am using online tools all the time, UK HEIs should be jumping all over this.

IVIExecBriefing-DigitalCapabilityv1.0_0.pdf

Fiona Harvey's insight:

More practical way of talking about digital literacies with employers - both for business and those in education.   'Digital Capablities' means more to business organisations than literacy probably would. The line is getting blurry between the two groups as we employ more administrative staff and leaders without an education or research background.  Maybe we just need to learn to talk the talk more often and then we can communicate and create change that way.

But are they digitally able to identify what the data they gather means?  We've already seen examples of how data is misinterpreted and those analysing this data may still be drawing conclusions based on 'old world' methodologies.
