Brian Brennan of Mozilla reveals their amazing new Open Badge Infrastructure with a demo.
He asks, How do you share and issue badges?
You require criteria and evidence. You have to know when it was issued and what it was for.
Mozilla has developed a tool that combines these things. He reveals the web “backpack” where people can store their badges and compare them. He points to Google+ where it is easy to use and access. They can be easily added to cover letters and resumes.
The site was just released yesterday—he projects an image of the architecture and shows how it generates the badges.
