A discussion. With the increasingly high profile of Mozilla’s OpenBadge project and the new arrival of the BadgeOS open source WordPress tool, the implementation of Open Badges is no longer as significant problem as it once was. If using and giving students OpenBadges is becoming relatively friction-less for educators and programs online, is there also a place for them in the traditional classroom?
What requirements should be put upon giving badges as part of a traditional program?
How can we (or should we) tie badges to the traditional academic requirements?
How should badges be implemented as part of a greater academic online presence?
