From Ben Betts: "As a community, xAPI specialists and Badge Alliance members are working on the ability to use xAPI data as the evidence for issuing Open Badges.  We’ve started out simple, specifying a recipe by which an Issuer can assert a user earning an Open Badge, via a xAPI statement. You can read more about the recipe at https://github.com/ht2/BadgesCoP/blob/master/earning/vocab.md. The next step is articulating a standard way in which xAPI statements could be used as a set of criteria, which then leads to the issuing of an Open Badge. This work has already begun in prototypes across the world." Good discussion of the structure of open badges and some tantalizing hints about their use with xAPI.
