Badges are awarded automatically for meeting criteria in specific online assessments, pathways and activities, or for attendance at offline courses and training sessions. These are usually valid for a period of one year before needing to be repeated. These can be connected directly to external Backpack to enable sharing with other sites and social media.
Open Badges are a widely used and easily verified way of sharing achievements across organisations and social networks. They are used and recognised by organisations as diverse as the Open University, Microsoft and the Disney Corporation. Our platforms allow you to connect your badges to a Mozilla Persona (Backpack) to enable you to store all of your badges from different sources in one easily accessed location.
