Online education, however, has facilitated the rise of “microcredentials,” namely digital badges, and nanodegrees, that aim to do just ​that. “I would say over the past three years or so, we’ve seen a rise in this arena in a way that we really haven’t seen in the past,” says Lauren Griffin, senior vice president of the recruitment ​agency Adecco Staffing USA. In some online classes, whether it’s MOOCs or for-credit courses offered through universities, instructors have begun incorporating digital badges into their curricula.

Mozilla’s Continued Commitment to Open Badges

This means creating tools and communities that teach important digital-age skills. It also means helping to build a technical ecosystem for recognizing and showcasing these skills.

It’s an ambitious task: the Open Badges project aimed to spark a transformation of how we recognize learning. The project has come a long way. The road to create an Open Badges ecosystem has also been challenging, and we’ve learned valuable lessons. It’s important to reflect on the progress we’ve made since launching the initiative. In 2011, Mozilla and MacArthur engaged with over 300 nonprofit organizations, government agencies and others about informal learning, breaking down education monopolies and fuelling individual motivation.
