We have created a number of spaces for those exploring open badges to share their trials and successes:
- There are weekly Community Calls that explore many open badges topics, including new and ongoing open badges projects and related initiatives
- We also host weekly Research Calls that dig into projects related to badges research and the development of badge systems across numerous sectors
- Join our Open Badges Community Google Group to take part in ongoing conversations about badges in the wild and receive regular email updates and news from the team and community
We also have a number of active social media channels that are monitored daily and can be a source of news, updates, answers, and resources:
- Open Badges Blog - openbadges.tumblr.com
- Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/OpenBadges
- Twitter - Follow @OpenBadges and track the hashtag #openbadges
We even have spaces for the technical among us to explore new ideas, report issues and collaborate to make the open badging ecosystem stronger from the inside out:
- The Open Badges Tech Panels are held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. These calls are a place for our team and community contributors to explore technical topics within open badges. It provides our developers and engineers a chance to share prototypes and new ideas, and for community members to raise questions and give feedback in an informal setting
- The Open Badges Developer Google Group is a place for our team and community members use this group as a place to discuss ideas and report issues
- All our bugs are filed in Github and issues can be reported and tracked easily from here: https://github.com/mozilla/openbadges/

Of course, if anyone has questions about anything badges-related at any time, it’s easy to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org - someone from the team will get in touch, usually within 24 hours.
