Submission + - Learners earn Open Badges from Mozilla (i-programmer.info)

mikejuk writes: Mozilla better known for open source projects such as Firefox and Thunderbird has gone into the education market — sort of. It has announced "Open Badge" an API for earning and displaying badges that indicate just what you have learned. Think of it as earning merit badges but without having to join the scouts... More seriously badges allow micro rewards for small achievements which could motivate the learner to do even more. This could be the future of educational accreditation — no more Degrees, Masters or PhDs just a backpack of badges.
