What is an Open Badge?
Open Badges (OBI - Open Badges Infrastructure) are open technological standards, defined by the Mozilla Foundation, used by more than 14,000 organizations all over the world to identify, enhance, group together and describe people's skills. Open Badges are symbolized by images that contain metadata regarding the skill that the badge represents and the person to whom the badge is assigned, the way in which it was verified and the institution that verified it.
How are they used?
They can be added to digital CVs to indicate a specific skill, as well as published on web sites like LinkedIn, to add value to one's skill portfolio.
