Badges/Issuers

From MozillaWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This page includes information about some organizations that are currently issuing badges. Badge issuing organizations are groups or individuals who have content to share and/or contributions and skills that they want to recognize. They determine the criteria and system design behind their badges, and they align those badges with the Open Badges Infrastructure. This benefits earners whose portable badges can then tell robust stories about what they're capable of.

Organizations that issue badges come from various sectors and sizes. They include formal and informal educational institutions; multinational corporations; industry associations; non-profits; and groups interested in professional development. They share a common interest in making their badges shareable and interoperable in alignment with the OBI.

This list includes badge issuers who have chosen to share their badges here. If you're interested in having your organization and badges listed, please log into the wiki and click "Edit" (top middle of this page). You can then list your organization's name and any links to the badges that you've made available.

Note that entries (and links) listed here have not been separately verified as this is a wiki page which is open to all to edit.
