Pearson is offering a commercial version of a badge platform that support's Mozilla's backpack standard. Dows anyone care to lay odds on how long it will be before Pearson adds proprietary commercial-only elements to its badge platform, in an effort to squeeze open source badges out of the picture? Ah, but maybe I'm being too cynical. According to the story, the badges will complement "a paper-based representation of a credential by providing proof of an earner's achievement in a web-enabled format that can be validated quickly and easily."
