ocTEL 2014 Badge Collection

I have found the idea of being issued badges for completing different activities a highly motivating factor throughout this MOOC. I think it is something that I could also incorporate into the way I structure some of my online course offerings and I’m going to look into the feasability of doing this for next year. I also like the idea of open badges that you can accumulate and carry around with you – rather like the ECTS credit system.

Here are some links to how this all works:

To collect your badges, carry them around and share them, you will need a Mozilla Backpack:

The badges carry coded information about who issued them and why etc.

Here is a sample of the badges I have earned from the ocTEL 2014 MOOC:
