(UPDATING) Press Coverage of Open Badges 1.0

Best press coverage of Open Badges 1.0 so far:

Business Insider

…Generally speaking, I avoid badges wherever possible and have on more than one occasion cursed Foursquare for its part in popularizing badges. However, this is just about the best use of the “badges” model that I could imagine….

Mozilla’s mission is simply to provide a system “for alternative accreditation, credentialing, and recognition” and help those alternative credentials “expand beyond siloed environments to be broadly shareable” and to “truly support learners learning everywhere.”

The more incidences of an “unaffiliated” (term used loosely) third-party creating web standards for credential sharing, or data sharing… the better off education will be.
