Digital Badges

I’m currently working on an open content course – the learner proposes the learning activities, the evidence they will gather and how they will demonstrate that they have met the agreed learning outcomes. It is pretty interesting stuff and opens up huge opportunities for experimenting on learning and education. To help in keeping students on track […]

An informative presentation from Doug Belshaw on Open Badges: Open badges : A new learning currency Tim Riches & Doug Belshaw Learning Technologies 29 Jan 2014 from DigitalME I find the approach of badging to be very interesting – another lighter form of credit accumulation – but will be interested to see how effective they’ll […]
