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
