Beuth Badges

Beuth Badges is a project on Mozilla Open Badges we have just started at Beuth University in Berlin. The idea is inspired by one of the Mozilla DML Competition winners – Moodle as Issuer, Mahara as Displayer – project led by Richard Wyles from Totara Learning Solutions.

Based on the idea of integrating Moodle, Mahara and Open Badges with Moodle acting as issuer of open badges and Mahara as displayer, our project aims at integrating the three systems, developing scenarios for the application of open badges in higher university courses and testing the first pilot in summer semester 2013.

At the moment these are the three key sources of information for us:

If you can help us with further sources, we would be very grateful!

We will be reporting on the development of the Beuth Badges project in this blog and are looking forward to taking with you!
