Badge Resources

Badging is more than patches and icons!

It is a whole credentialing ecosystem:

  • Individuals demonstrate proficiency in various skills or competencies and receive a badge acknowledging and “crediting” them with that achievement
  • They can collect their badges (micro-credentials) from various sources
  • Others can review their badges, which have important information “on the backside” of each badge detailing the requirements of the badge, when the individual earned it, who the credentialing organization was, how long the badge is valid, etc.

OpenBadges.org currently maintains the standard for using badges for micro-credentialing.
