Digital badges within an online community, and public display, like Mozilla’s Open Badges (OBI) offer an exciting and powerful medium for learner engagement. In this session, participants will explore the fundamentals of badge design. (Spoiler Alert: The technical part can be done in only 2 minutes!)
