    My colleague Julian Prior and I have been working through this course together and have built our course in Moodle to help our lecturers. Please read about our project here on my blog (it's also been shared via twitter & facebook).

    In the course we invite lecturers to have a go at earning their own badge! We ask them to explore the content, reflect on how they would use badges, then submit a proposal to us. Once one of us has read the proposal we will issue a Moodle (Badge Explorer) badge to that lecturer and will arrange a 1-2-1 session with them to support the development of their idea further.

    You can see our course as a guest: (password: p2pufriend)

    Thanks for the missions! We have promoted this course on our site too!

    Sam :)

    Hey Sam,

    the PW doesn't seem to work.

    I read your other comments and you seem to be very interested into badges, online learning and gamification.

    You might want to have a looked at early version of our Project:
    Crowducate - True Open Education.

    The idea is, eventually, that the crowd works TOGETHER on the same course as in OpenSourceSoftware (OSS) collaboration.

    I discussed the topic on Hastac, have a look.
    And you can receive and issue badges, too.

    I'm also thinking how to combine P2PU with Crowducate. Open for ideas.

    Thanks Amir!

    I've fixed the log-in (not sure what happened?). It's still the same: p2pufriend

    I will explore your links too :)

    If you have any questions reg. Crowducate, or Feedback, please let me know.

    I created a short Moodle course called Badges Trial for Ontario-based adult literacy educators to use to earn badges and see how Moodle badges can be uploaded into the Mozilla Backpack.  The course is on a public Moodle site so feel free to register to access the site and following login locate and enroll in the Badges Trial course found in the Active courses category.

    You have to start at the Virtual Classroom for Adult Educators site.

    I used the free Moodle badges in the course.  You can earn four badges there.

    I had never come across that Badges for Moodle site before- what a cute site! Great work on adding the badges to the virtual classroom site, Nancy. I hope that you have applied for the badge in this course!

    For my project, I created a module in the online course I teach to explain to students what badges are and to have them discuss the issues.

    Drum set skills is my big, badge project. It will be based on my current skill system but modified according to the "4 Keys 2 Fun" put out by XEODesign. I have yet to find anyone else who has done this. Wish me luck.

    I'm developing a paper which will propose how we go about using badges in our organisation. I've done a considerable amount of research into this and frankly the more I learn the better it seems. Yes there are issues but none of them come close to the gains that I can see for us to develop a well thought out system for issuing badges. I can't offer a link to anything at the moment because I've not completed the paper nor had it accepted, but I'd like to say how useful this introductory course has been in sending me in the right direction to learn about the topic. Well done!

    I am creating a peer to peer language class, called "Cada Dia Spanish."  Native speakers will help nonNative speakers, help each other learning Spanish... or English.  I have not added badges yet, but soon.

    Thank you.

    This looks great. When I retire, which I hope is soon, I might join. I was once fairly fluent in Spanish, but haven't spoken in years. Maybe I can earn some badges.. cathy lichtman On Thu, Feb 28, 2013 at 2:39 PM, henrymp <

    Hello, all:

    I'm still hoping to solicit some feedback on my Badge project submission. I have one of the three required reviews.  My submission link is available here:

    Be sure to let me know if you also have a submission needing review. :)

    Thanks in advance!

    My project is to create a hypothetical plan for  a badge system as an adjunct to the traditional curriculum used in my elementary school. 

    Phase I: A Reading Badge  to be used in a single test classroom with a digital mockup.

    Phase II: Expand the scope of the program to a grade wide system with an actual dedicated server system in place.

    Phase III: Include other subjects, one test badge for each of the student's subjects, i.e. a Math Badge, a Science badge, a Language Arts badge, a Physical Education Badge, an Art Badge, et cetera.

    Phase IV: Expand each subjects badge options to interact with individual teacher's curricula by their request

    Phase V: Create seim-permanent position for a badge administrator whose job it is to create new badges for teachers to implement in the following school year.

    The scheme for this hypothetical badge system will be updated on this blog:

    Looks like a good framework, Sean. I remember a government sponsored badge system in the 70's (PARTICIPACTION) that echoed a lot of the physical fitness stuff you speak to in your description.  As I recall, it was a real point of pride to have those badges.  Hopefully you will see similar success in your efforts.

    Good on you for tackling the Badges initiative while taking the evening course you spoke of. I think you can use the badges as a tangible demonstration of things you have learned, but you could also consider your blog as a similar vehicle for displaying what you did on that evening course.  Sure, there's no paper or qualification, but if the blog becomes an e-portfolio, you're providing a real demonstration to a viewer.

    Good luck!

    Hey Mark,

    Your ideas for Badging Twitter discussions is interesting.  Did you ever end up implementing it?  If you did implement it, how did it go?

    I also enjoyed the 3Ts of Badge Systems article you posted, thanks!

    My blog, HatchTheAware, is still in the making, but will be focusing on badges earned for adult and young adult use. My blog will point out great places to start earning badges, and soon will specify how badges are used in an ePortfolio for personal/proffessional branding. I am hoping to gain help from the testimonials of others and examples of how they have applied badges in their lives, and where it has lead them.

    Here is my blog:

    As far as I know, you are the first in this course to create a blog post from the perspective of the badge earner, rather than the issuer.  This is good.  I encourage you to submit this post for badge credit (by hitting some button somewhere...)

    I've been looking at Open Badges for some time since meeting Doug Belshaw (Mozilla's leader for open badges). My plan is to create some for my Computer Games Design course, initially, then roll it out further to other courses. Some of my ideas and plans are on my blog, I hope to work with other teachers in Scotland doing the same courses so that we don't duplicate effort.

    I decided that I'm going to create a badge that will encourage new developers to participate in an open source project called Sakai.  Sakai is a well-established open source community with a large install base and a LOT of code.  It can be daunting for a new developer to come up to speed and get engaged, so I figured a badge is a good way to recognize such things.  In the process it will help me figure out how to create badges and issue them.
