JESS KLEIN: BadgeKit: An Invitation to Innovation

JESS KLEIN: BadgeKit: An Invitation to Innovation | Moodle and Mahara | Scoop.it
gideonwilliams's insight:

Discussion on Mozilla's Badge Kit ideas. What I do like is the list of 8 doing verbs associated with badging (and innovation):

 

 

Design badges: Enable organizations (or individuals) to visually design their badgesDefine badges: Enable organizations (or individuals) to define the information behind the badge according to the open badges standard, i.e. metadata specificationAssess badges: Enable organizations to define rubrics for assessment and assess the badges accordinglyIssue badges: Enable organizations (or individuals) to issue their badges once the criteria is metCollect and manage badges: Enable learners to see all the badges they have earned in one place, organize and manage themShare badges: Enable learners to share their earned badges easily across the webDiscover badges: Enable learners, issuers (and down the road employers) to discover new badges and badge owners

Good discourse through Moodle badges showing progres being made on this feature. Links to Mozilla as repository but no mention of Mahara :O(

 

Great to see different contributions from other locations although all mainly colleges.

 

Interesting to read about the complaints for badges (slide 12) and the idea that badges are showcasing skills in the same way CVs do (slides 15-17).

 

Really interesting to see developing use of badges to assess staff skills (slides 28-36)!

Link to documentation and test Moodle site that you can both be a teacher (to make and issue badges) and student (to earn them).

 

This is still very early days but highly encouraging.

 

Works best if you also have a Mozilla backpack set up at http://beta.openbadges.org/

 

Hugely encouraging and highly exciting work from Totara.

OpenBadges in Moodle: The Alternative Ending Part 5

OpenBadges in Moodle: The Alternative Ending Part 5 | Moodle and Mahara | Scoop.it

After all the problems I had, Yuliya and Totara made me my own student account so I could demonstrate how to export to the Mozilla Backpack.

 

Here is the new video which also shows you how to import badges gained from other sites back into Moodle.

 

Bit of a ramble but we get there in the end!

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.

Badgets as a new form of competence-improvement. Also availble in Moodle soon. Very interesting topic!

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.
