Open Badges and Assessment
Aug 24, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes
Suggested as a result of some of my recent posts is this site, Open Badges and assessment, on P2PU. The project is based on the Mozilla Badges initiative, an open platform that will enable anyone to issue, collect and display badges (p)roviding learners with new ways to get public recognition for their skills and achievements." According to the Mozilla site, "Our system will make it easy for education providers, web sites and other organizations to issue badges that give public recognition and validation for specific skills and achievements (a)nd provide an easy way for learners tomanage and display those badges across the web -- on their personal web site or resume, social networking profiles, job sites or just about anywhere."
