Mozilla Open Badges?

The Mozilla Open Badges initiative aims to provide a framework for recording and displaying achievements. Badges—or micro-credentials—offer a digital, bite-sized, portable way to represent the skills you've attained. You can read more on the Mozilla Badges website at http://openbadges.org/

More free tools from MyKnowledgeMap

We believe in enabling individuals to learn and develop throughout their lives. And we create free tools to help make it happen. Check out our other tools that compliment OpenBadges.me:




Myshowcase.me is simply the most powerful solution for showcasing your achievements and capability. And it's free for individuals to use. Free for life!

We've been working in the eportfolio space for a long time, and had found that the limitation of many solutions was that they had been designed as institutional systems. The needs of the individual took second place. We've developed a personal showcasing tool, Myshowcase.me, which is free for individuals for life.




This is the place to store all your badges for FREE. Known as an open badge “backpack”, BadgeUp provides the tools for an individual to collect their badges, to organise their badges into collections, and to decide where and how they wish to display their badges.

This FREE cloud-based service is an ideal place for badge issuers to direct their users badges. Organisations using www.openbadges.me for badge design and issuing are given the option to use BadgeUp.me
