I really did think that collecting badges incentivised my participation. Participant, Jisc e-Assessment for Learning course We believe that Open Badges have enormous potential in motivating learning, improving retention and in presenting the skills of our learners in way that is clear and accessible for them and employers. In this way, Open Badges will help our learners stand out in the jobs market. Vice-Principal: Quality and Innovation, Borders College.15 16. Open Badges: Creating, Issuing and Displaying Badges Worth Earning! 10/12/2013Open Badges What people are saying about Open Badges while academic achievements can be evidenced by anacademic transcript, there is no such evidence of so-called soft skills the personal attributes that enhance a graduates work ethic, job performance, interaction with work colleagues and, ultimately, their career prospects. I am convinced that Open Badges can evidence the development of these personal attributes in a way that is recognisable to, and trusted by, employers.
