A badge is a representation of an outcome or achievement. Badges are often used in contexts like scouting, gaming, social sites and rankings or authority. Open Badges refer specifically to badges that adhere to an open standard being led by Mozilla for recognizing and validating learning. Open Badges are secure, web-enabled credentials that contain granular, verified information employers can use to evaluate an individual’s potential.
Representing your credentials as badges give you the ability to broadcast your skills and tell your professional story online with single-click access to validated credential information.
