Mozilla Open Badges
Learning today happens everywhere. But it's often difficult to get recognition for skills and achievements that happen online or out of school. Mozilla Open Badges helps solve that problem, making it easy for any organization to issue, manage and display digital badges across the web.
Many organizations are issuing badges as a part of their curriculum, but most do so in a siloed environment. The Open Badges specification allows badge systems to push their badges to a unified backpack, giving the badge earner control of their data.
Mozilla's Webmaker badges give a good overview of a typical issuing program.
