    I”m trying out Mozilla’s OpenBadges on this site to get an idea if it would work for a project I have in mind for our libraries.

    I’ve installed the WPBadger plugin and the OpenBadges.me Open Badges Designer to test them out. So far, I’ve found it really easy to create and send badges that people can then manage through Mozilla Backpack (you have to make an account for this). It’s not as pretty and polished as I’d like a finished product to be, but it looks like the idea is there.

    If you’re interested in badges and want to help me test this, leave a comment below and I’ll send you a “Superstar!” badge for helping me out.

      I’m interested too, particularly in how you’re serving them out. I was looking at the developer docs and each time it’s just a little too tl;dr and I go on to something else.

        I just sent you a badge. Let me know what you think.

          That was wicked easy. It’s good to note that you can associate multiple emails with a single backpack – i.e., I had already registered viz my work email, but being that the award was issued for “irreferential AT gmail DOT com” I couldn’t accept it as anyone else. I simply added the gmail as an alias and everything was dandy.
