What are Open Badges?
During this course we will be trialing a new way to issue ‘certification’ of your learning – by using Mozilla ‘Open Badges’.
Open Badges are a new way to recognise skills and achievements, where the badge enables the individual who has earned it to display real-world achievement and skills which can be used and demonstrated outside of a closed learning environment. The badge itself is aligned to the learning outcome of an activity or set of activities, skill acquisition or demonstration, and is not limited to a pass / fail grade mentality. Badges can be used as evidence of successful engagement in personal or professional development.
Using the Mozilla standards for Open Badges learners can use their badges to showcase their achievements from a variety of sources and learning, whether they were formal or informal
