Badges/infrastructure-tech-docs - MozillaWiki | Professional learning | Scoop.it

Get badges for your learning across the web....INTERESTING!!!

 

Mozilla Open Badge Infrastructure (OBI)

 

Why Are We Doing This?

 

Learners are learning everywhere -- but most of that learning doesn't count

Exploring badges as an alternative accreditation/credentialing system

Must avoid more silos

To truly support learners learning everywhere == support badges issued from multiple issuers across the Web

To optimize the value of those badges, need to be remixable and shareable with many different audiences/sites

Need a supporting infrastructure to standardize the process and support each user collecting badges from multiple users and sharing subcollections out across various displayers.

This infrastructure needs to be open and as decentralized as possible to give learners control and support the entire ecosystem

Thanks for the INGOTS reference Ray, I'll be sure to have a look. Has there been any research on results, usage etc?
