Making skills & learning visible and discoverable with open badges

Open Badges is a global standard used to recognise and verify learning & skills wherever and whenever they happen, and make them shareable across the web. Gráinne Hamilton has contributed to the standard’s development from conceptualisation by the Mozilla Foundation through to its current stewardship by IMS Global. Services delivered include contributing authorship to the standard; co-creating the concept and blueprints for Open Badge Pathways; aiding in the transition from Mozilla to IMS Global; founding the first national Open Badges network; informing the creation of an open badge platform (the OBA); and steering group membership of the Open Badge Network, which provided recommendations for policy in the European Union.
