Doug Belshaw's keynote at OER13. He outlines his work with the Mozilla Foundation on open badges and new web literacies, explaining their close relationship to OERs (and not just by means of the 'OER developer' badge). I'm still somewhat sceptical of badges, partially because I think they (along with other credentials, like degrees) will be replaced with direct learning data, and partially because badges are more opaque than the system they replace (eg. from the image, one of the badges is 'A Lister' - what does that mean, exactly?).
