It’s great to see such enthusiasm around Open Badges on our community. Last year, the Mozilla Foundation’s Doug Belshaw hosted one of our Learning Hours on ‘How to recognise all of your learners’ skills with Open Badges‘. You are welcome to view the webinar recording, presentation and corresponding resources in the wrap up blog that [...]

Hi Justin we do.
We have a questionnaire which, when completed, is sent to the corporate H&S team group email. That way, they can sample the completed questionnaires as required. In addition, a management check document is also hosted on the DLE.

Hi all, we are looking to launch a pilot user group for Learning Pool in July and follow up with an evaluation questionnaire to measure the success/ failings/ impacts etc. Just wondering if anybody has done this and if there are any key questions you would advise us to ask the pilot group in order [...]

Great post Bob and I think you are right about the need for an Open Badges forum on here. We are just in the process of making some major changes to the Learning Pool website and as soon as we are across that I will be happy to get that forum in place. You are [...]

Hi All,
Does anyone use the DLE functionality to manage DSE assessments (not just assessments of learning)?
Thanks, Justin

We have not taken any actions yet in terms of open badges, but we are very interested in opportunities they look to offer. A webinar on the topic of some of the applications would be great!

Good to see that people are looking at Open Badges seriously, I really believe that they are the future for academia and business. My daughter brings home so many bits of paper, 99% of which could be OBs. I have also tested the badges with 2.5 and sent and displayed from the Open Backpack as [...]

By the way, I’m using http://www.makebadg.es/badge.html to make my badges. I can’t remember where I got this link so if one of you guys discovered it first and told me about it, do speak up and have the credit :)

I haven’t rolled anything out yet but, being a college, it will ultimately be our teaching staff who decide how they will use badges/certificates in the courses they teach. I will suggest that they use badges for things like extension activities or optional elements of the courses rather than just issuing them for completion of [...]

Of course. In fact we will probably blog about it and maybe even do a webinar.
Is anyone else doing anything with Open Badges?

It’s nice to see people starting to look at this exciting new feature. There is a project taking place in the North East at the moment to look at creating a safeguarding badge that carries accreditation from a respected care organisation. The aim is to create a badge that has a recognisable value to employers [...]

Hi Jon, Great to see you have embraced this new feature to the 2.5 DLE. Going forward we can see this as being a very important and useful tool. We can see a lot of benefit to students who can collect badges from multiple sources and add to their own Backpack. I’ve created a user [...]

Hi Jon,
We are testing the DLE shortly and look foward to using the Open Badges. Just out of my curiosity are you using these instead of certificates or as well as? If so do you work with Social Care courses its only to find out if CQC approve of this method?
Thanks
Tara

I just did a bit of testing with DLE 2.5 to see how the badge thing works. More out of curiosity than anything else, but it’s pretty good! I made a new badge and added it to a course really quickly and it worked fine. Then I made a Mozilla backpack and the DLE (LMS, [...]
