What’s This Whole Moodle LMS Badges thing?

Totara and Moodle badges are pretty awesome. Think of Scouts and the badges that one receives for achievements/ accomplishments. They are a fantastic way to show exactly how skilled and educated you are.  Honestly, how many people out there have a box of certificates packed away that they only pull out when asked to prove something. Online “backpacks” are given for storing your badges so you can pull it out on your smartphone if asked. however you can also show them on a WordPress blog or on Twitter, and Mozilla offers and issuer insignia to those offering badges to display on their website.

Each badge contains meta data that shows how you obtained the badge and who from it is easy to prove credibility. Definition wise I would say a badge is a digital records to show:

Totara will be able to support Open Badges in May 2013 and Moodle badges will be following soon afterward. You can definitely say that we at Paradiso Solutions as Totara Partners are super proud and very excited. Moodle and Totara show a huge amount of forward thinking by supporting Open Badges.
