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.




Mapping out the skills, knowledge and capability that people need in order to perform and progress is an incredibly powerful tool. It's core to what we do and if done right, it allows organisations to create a shared understanding of competence or success, and allows you to give better feedback and plan learning and training more effectively.

We've created a free tool that makes it easier to create, manage, visualise and share frameworks, and to do clever things with them.
