Open Badges

Last week, we launched Mozilla BadgeKit, the new set of open, foundational tools to make the badging process easy. BadgeKit:

  • Supports key stages in the badging experience including creating, designing, assessing and issuing.
  • Includes remixable templates and milestone badges allowing for easy customization.
  • Provides modular and open options (standards) for the community of badge makers to use and build upon within their existing sites or systems.

Availability of BadgeKit:

  • Open now in private beta for select partner organizations that meet specific technical requirements.
  • Apply for access to the private beta hosted version.
  • Grab the code for each tool within Github.

Grow Mozilla

Speaker Location:

Identity

Speaker Location: Vidyo

Last Friday, we announced that Persona is transitioning to community ownership. You can read more on the Identity blog at http://identity.mozilla.com/post/78873831485/transitioning-persona-to-community-ownership

The most important points:

  • Mozilla is still supporting Persona. We're just not funding new feature development.
  • Many of the original paid contributors are still working on Persona in their free time, alongside long-time community contributors.
  • Persona is Open Source! Join us in #identity and #persona and help us fix authentication on the web! :-)

As for why the change is happening: Read the blog post! In short, we didn't see as much adoption as we were hoping for by this point, nor did we see a clear path to adoption by other browsers / major email providers. Instead of piling on features, we've decided to keep Persona focused on what we know it does well: simple, email-based authentication.
