Connecting badges earned in Moodle with Open Badges Backpack


I am now using Moodle badges as a core part of our innovation-design strategy. Students and staff earn badges that indicate they have achieved a level of awareness, that they are active in adopting-adapting a new approach, and that they are working to help others in the community and feeding into the organisational learning and design loop.

Now that our Moodle platform has been upgraded to version 3 badge recipients can export their achievements to the Mozilla Backpack, create collections (including badges from other providers) and share their collated achievements with the outside world. I’ve created this video for our badge winners, and for potential badge awarders, to explain the value and mechanics of doing this.
