Show your true colours!
Your EuroCALL open badge will shortly be issued to all those who participated and presented at EuroCALL 2019 in Louvain la Neuve, Belgium! The short tutorial above shows how to collect and display your badge and we look forward to spotting yours online.
An open badge carries "baked in" information about how it was earned and to whom is was issued. You can even print off a paper copy which carries a QR code once you have added the badge to your Open Badge Passport.
The Open Badge infrastructure was originally created by Mozilla. It provides a technical means for creating, issuing and collecting micro-credentials for both formal and informal learning. There are many examples of their use and some published research is curated on the badge wiki community here.
If you already have an account on another badge platform such as Badgr, Credly or one of the many others listed you can import your badge to add to your collection directly from the issuing email. Look out for the email as often they are filtered out and end up in your spam folder.
