What is the Open Badges Infrastructure?
Mozilla's Open Badges Infrastructure (OBI) provides the open, core technology to support an ecosystem of badges. It is a standard that has been designed to support a broad range of different badge issuers, and allow any user to earn badges across different issuers, web sites and experiences, then combine them into a single collection tied to their identity. This collection of badges can then be shared out to various audiences across the web, resulting in real-world results like jobs or formal credit.
Using Mozilla’s Open Badges infrastructure, any organization or community can issue badges backed by their own seal of approval. Learners can then collect badges from different sources and display them across the web - on their resumes, websites, social networking profiles, job sites and more.
