Open Badges are digital credentials that consist of a badge image and detailed information (meta data) that is "baked into" the image file, which enables institutions and employers to verify the issuer of the Badge and also check the criteria that a learner is required to meet to earn the Badge.
Open Badges are an innovative solution created by Mozilla with support from the MacArthur Foundation, HASTAC, and others that enable learners to collect, share, and display specific knowledge, skills, and experiences online.
To earn a MindEdge Badge, you must read all course materials, complete all course activities, and score 70% or higher on required course assessments (if applicable).
After successfully completing all courses in a particular suite with a score of 70% or higher on all required tests, log in to your account and click "My Course Record" in the left side menu. Then scroll down to the Suites and Bundles section of the page and click the "badge" link for the certificate program you have completed. Finally, follow the instructions to add the certificate badge to your Mozilla Backpack.
To share your Open Badges as an update on social media, navigate to your Mozilla Backpack (backpack.openbadges.org) and add one or more badges to a badge collection. Then, click on the Share button on the badge collection tile. On the next page, click the "Share this on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, LinkedIn" link in the upper left corner of the page.
To add your Open Badges to your LinkedIn profile, select a badge collection, and copy and paste the page's URL into a section of your LinkedIn profile.
