Open digital badges
are graphical representations that act as assessment and credentialing
mechanisms. They are created, managed and shared online.
Open digital badges capture,promote, and transfer learning that occurs
in diverse contexts: in-school, out-of-school, and online. Badges have
the potential to transform the value of alternative learning
The Mozilla Open Badge Infrastructure is free software that allows
earners and issuers to easily collect, share,and display their badges
online. Many badge creators strive to make their badge systems OBI
compliant. For more technical information on how to make a badge system
OBI compliant, visit the openbadges-specification GitHub page.
