  18. The Open Badges Initiative Accessibility and transparency Richard Wyles, Totara

    LMS at MaharaUK12 http://maharauk.org/mod/resource/view.php?id=117
  19. Capturing the learning path • Illustrates the learning path rather

    than aggregated assessments • Badges can be more granular, aligned to a specific achievement • Portable, alternative certification model Wyles, 2012
  20. Visual recognition of achievement With links to validation • Perceived

    value will differ based on the “use case”, or community. A wide variety of badge systems will emerge; ➢Formal education ➢Professional bodies ➢Peer to peer recognition ➢Corporate, workplace learning • Infrastructure to support diversity of contexts with better robustness and connection to Issuer. Wyles, 2012
  21. Embedded information • Who was the Issuer? • Issue date

    • Brief description of how badge was earned • Links to artefacts, testimonials etc. – i.e. the e-portfolio • Web service for verification. – “Did the Issuer issue the badge?” – “Is it still valid?” Wyles, 2012
  22. Open Badges: Risks and Benefits • Infrastructure for alternative credentialing

    – Modern society demands new and dynamic skills and literacies. Requires innovation and flexibility in learning environments • Anyone can issue accreditations about anything? Won’t this lead to badge “bling” and therefore badges become meaningless? – Badges need credibility but it’s within context – Only some will gain credibility Wyles, 2012
