Like scouting badges, Open Badges communicate a skill or achievement but are displayed on the Internet. They contain comprehensive data including who has earned the badge, its criteria, learning evidence and who has endorsed it. All this information is packaged within a tiny badge image file that can be displayed via online CVs and social networking sites.
We believe Open Badges have the potential to radically change the way we see qualifications: from abstract measures of knowledge to a tool to connect talent with opportunities for employment, training or enterprise.
We can support you each step of the way on your Open Badge journey, from developing your initial idea to creating a global badge solution. We work with schools, learning organisations and employers to use badges to recognise skills & achievements.
If you are interested in creating badges for your learning programme or community, or endorsing and recognising badge schemes then we want to hear from you.
