Mozilla releases Open Badges, a new standard to recognize & verify learning

Mozilla is collaborating with the world to develop an open badge ecosystem that makes it possible to recognize skills, literacies, and interests across the web.

The company has released Mozilla Open Badges 1.0, a  new online standard to recognize and verify learning. According to the website, Open Badges makes it easy to…

  • earn badges for skills you learn online and offline
  • give recognition for things you teach
  • show your badges in the places that matter

“We often talk about finding ways to make learning more accessible to more people,” says Erin Knight, Mozilla’s Senior Director of Learning and Badges in a blog post on the company website. “Open Badges has the power to make that happen. We can legitimize learning of all kinds, and empower people to create their own custom pathways toward jobs, education and opportunity.”
