Mozilla Open Badges: Recognition for All Types of Learning and Real Results
Brian Brennan, Mozilla
Using Mozilla’s new Open Badge Infrastructure, any organization, course or community can issue badges backed by their own seal of approval. Learners can collect badges from different sources and display them on their resume, web site, social networking profiles, employment sites, or just about anywhere. See how it works in this awesome demo from Mozilla.
The Gamification Summit brings together top thought leaders in game mechanics and engagement science. Hear what works and what doesn't in this dynamic and fast-moving field through case studies, keynotes and panels delivered by experts such as Gabe Zichermann (Game-Based Marketing), James Gardner (Spigit), Jon Radoff (Disruptor Beam), Michael Wu (Lithium) and Alexandra Wilkis Wilson (founder of Gilt Groupe). Learn how game mechanics and the new science of engagement are rewriting the rules of brand marketing, product design and customer acquisition and get your business in the game.
Brian Brennan is currently spearheading all technical development and implementation of the Open Badges initiative for Mozilla. He is super interested in exploring how technology can change the way people learn and how we can recognize new paths of learning in a meaningful way. Before joining the Mozilla, Brian worked at Flat World Knowledge developing a textbook content customization system for educators. Brian is also an occasional contributor to P2PU and believes that combined with open educational resources, an open reputation system and a good assessment strategy distributed learning environments can be an important part of the education landscape.
