#OpenBadges: the Milestones of a re-Decentralised Web - In the digital world we live in, the main ground is possessed by the few, the Digital-Landlords. A whole paraphernalia of digital rights management, technologies, contracts, lawyers, regulations voted under influence and the cyber police make sure that we do not infringe their rights.

We will start with a BadgeChain that does not make any reference to the blo...

#OpenBadges: the BOTOX of education? — #BeyondCredentials - Two weeks ago, during the Badge Alliance weekly Community Call (link) when Nate Otto presented the outcomes of the Badge Alliance Board Meeting, one of the slides (c.f. below) triggered a discussion on whether Open Badges are “just about credentialing”: Are Open Badges just about credentialing? Earlier in April, Carla Casilli posted her reflections on “Open badges + credentials: the value of the not-credential” (link): “Right now, ...
