Open Badges Research

Building on a quickly developing base of ongoing open badges investigation, the Research Working Group strives to establish a research base that reports on a variety of open badges aspects. This group of academic researchers, design researchers, badge system designers, consultants, and other badge-interested parties works to corral the wide range of research into a few accessible locations, filters existing research into lay terms, and devises tools to aid open badges research, consideration, and examination. Covering the entire realm of the open badges ecosystem, this group actively works to inform the public with meaningful information about open badges.
