Digital Me Open Badges
Workshops and Masterclasses are evidenced with Digital Me Badges. Open Badges communicate a skill or achievement but are displayed on the Internet. They contain comprehensive data including who has earned the badge, its criteria, learning evidence and who has endorsed it. All this information is packaged within a tiny badge image file that can be displayed via online CVs and social networking sites. – See more at:
