As the 'Mahara champ' at my institution, I'll be using the journal tool in my ePortfolio.
This course will become read-only in the near future. Tell us at community.p2pu.org if that is a problem.
Do one or more of the following:

I'm an avid Evernote user so will use a shared Evernote notebook for researching Open Badges and taking this course:
I'll also post some random thoughts on open badges at http://jpodcaster.com
I recently joined the British organisation, Institute for Learning. They have a software tool called REfLECT (adapted from PebblePad+). It gives me a space where I can keep all my learning experiences together, which is very useful for demonstrating active participation in PD during performance reviews and audits.
This tool includes a blog, something which I have not used before, so I will use REfLECT for this activty.
Started a Google doc to publish my information gathering on Open Badges.https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8gNzvDkdeVMZmZRbGw5NVBmMUU/edit?usp=sharing
I like the idea of tracking my learning progress in a blog, such as Wordpress. I have a Wordpress website, but I'm currently in the process of making many changes to it, so I don't want to fiddle with recording my progress and learning observations within my Wordpress site at this time.
Like many others, I also utilze Evernote and/or similar applications, such as Microsoft OneNote (which I personally prefer to Evernote, but that is merely my personal preference). So, I'll utilize OneNote for this purpose (it also allows for screencapture, etc.)
I have a word press blog I have used previously. I would like to get into the habit of blogging more often so this may help me get started. My blog can be found at http://sandradyke.wordpress.com/.
I use Google Docs as part of my teaching and I find it useful when doing class group work and sharing documents with others but I don't think I will use it here because at the moment I think a blog will be more useful.
The other tool I use on a regular basis is Diigo as a way of capturing links. I would like to use Evernote (or even OneNote seeing I use Microsoft Office) but I never seem to get around to actually using it!
I am a long time user of GDocs, so here is the GDoc I created:
I also am fiddling with:
For blogging, I usually use Blogger -> janzeblogsit. It is my main teaching site, so I don't want to use it just yet.
I have Evernote on my Android tablet, but haven't really used it - the Google integration seems to do the trick.
As with most of you, I'm taking the course as a way to explore Badges. I work for a University and I've been asked to dig into the technical details of implementing this service. My background is in computer technology.
I elected to use Blogger.com for the course. You can find my blog at http://eulipians-techreviews.blogspot.com/. I love and use Evernote as my primary cross-platform notes database and work with Wordpress regularly. I have experience with Microsoft Office365 instead of Google Docs, but they are essentially similar products. (I do have a Gmail account, however, for my Android devices.) So, that left me with Blogger as "unknown" territory to explore.
I've noted a few bug-a-boos using IE10 on Win7 for access to P2PU. They all went away when I switched browsers to Chrome.
Looking forward to the next objective...
I've maintained a work-related blog for a couple of years now, and since the work I'm doing in this course will help my current project, I will be posting my notes, observations, ideas, etc. to my blog at rhargis.wordpress.com under the category of "opencourses".
