Open Badges : a best-practice framework
MetadataShow full item record
The widespread adoption of online education is severely challenged by issues of verifiability, reliability, security and credibility. Open Badges exist to address these challenges, but there is no consensus as to what constitutes best practices regarding the implementation of an Open Badge system within an educational context. In this paper we survey the current landscape of Open Badges from educational and technological perspectives. We analyze a broad set of openly-reported pilot projects and case studies, and derive a comprehensive best practice framework that tries to capture the requirements for successful implementation within educational institutions. We conclude by identifying some significant gaps in the technology and identify some possible future research directions.
