Digital Badging Websites with WordPress, BadgeOS & Credly
Workshop description: Digital badges can provide a way for students, teachers, or anyone else to show evidence of their learning in a workshop, course, or other context. In this intermediate/advanced session, we'll explore how to use the free/open source web platform WordPress, the free WordPress plugin BadgeOS, and the website Credly to create a Mozilla Open Badges-compliant website. We'll explore how to create a site which grants badges immediately following user completion of specified steps, without moderation. MacBook Maestro (http://macbookmaestro.com) is an example site supporting this use of Digital Badges. We'll also explore how the free iOS app and website Credly.com can be used to collect and share earned digital badges.
