Open Badges are deceptive. They may look small but the more you think about them, the more you realize the deep and wide implications of their use. Carla Casilli drills down in to some of the detail of considerations for badge system design and also explores the breadth of the reach of open badges in this currently working document.

Validating Open Badges | Jon Buckley

Validating Open Badges | Jon Buckley | HigherEd Technology 2013 | Scoop.it

This is quite a technical post on developing open badges, in particular focusing on badge validatation (which will clearly be required to check that a badge is genuine and issued from the issuer it says it's from to the issuee). You can see an example of what an open badge might look like and how verification might work.

 

"Last week I had the opportunity to work with Brian Brennan, who is the technical lead on Mozilla’s Open Badges project. One of the problems that interested me during the work week was validating open badges.

...

 I built a demo that showed off in-browser verification of badges. I’d love to see the badge spec continue to evolve, and become even more robust. The next step is signing badges is going to ensure that they can’t be tampered with. It should be interesting to verify that inside the browser. It’d also be good to switch to the ‘iTXt’ PNG chunk, which is designed to hold international text, such as URLs."

Moodle's Open Badges plugin. Still in alpha and planned for a Moodle 2.5 release (I think).

 

Have managed to have a play with it on a friends install and it is AWESOME.

 

See the other Scoopit entry for details on the documentation.

I am finishing a class Games In Learning and Assessment through UW-Stout. The class was a game, the player had to earn both quest and reward badges. It was created in Badgestack. Very cool way to learn.
