Open badges opens doors


Johanni Larjanko


Within only a few years Open Badges has established itself as a viable, flexible, open and useful system for validating skills and competencies within a wide range of learning arenas.

In the workshop concrete examples of implementation are presented and discussed. Examples range from NGOs to companies to higher education providers. Challenges and weaknesses are assessed, and the participants get an overview of the process involved. This will help them decide whether Open Badges is something for them, and if so, what to do next.
