About Open Badges

Badgr issues and understands credentials that are fully compliant with the Mozilla Open Badges specification for verifiable digital credentials. That means the badges issued from within Badgr may be moved to or displayed within any other application that understands Open Badges. Users who have earned Open Badges anywhere else on the web can import them into Badgr and build a unified collection of their accomplishments, no matter where they were earned.

Open Badges are not just visual symbols of accomplishment. They contain detailed descriptions of recipients’ achievements and may link to evidence of individuals’ work toward earning the badge. Badgr and other applications that understand Open Badges can verify their authenticity and help people understand how each badge fits into an individual's lifelong learning journey.

Badge Resources

Open Badges - Learning today happens everywhere, not just in the classroom. But it's often difficult to get recognition for skills and achievements that happen outside of school. Mozilla's Open Badges project is working to solve that problem, making it easy for anyone to issue, earn and display badges across the web through a shared technical infrastructure.

Oregon Badge Alliance - The Oregon Badge Alliance serves as a focal point for collaborations between state institutions, employers, and the education community as we work together to build a vibrant ecosystem for badges and micro-certifications in Oregon.

OCDL - The Oregon Center for Digital Learning is a non-profit 501(c)3 dedicated to promoting the use of digital micro-credentials and education technology innovations in Oregon.

Cities of Learning - Cities of Learning integrate the principles of Connected Learning, a new learning approach that recognizes that learning today can and does take place anywhere and everywhere -- in school, in the community, on the job and online -- and that building on a learner's interests is key to engagement.
