(601) Make Open Badges Better

A session at Mozilla Festival 2012

Saturday 10th November, 2012

1:00pm to 2:00pm (GMT)

The Open Badges team is rolling out user experience enhancements to the Badge Backpack; which is where an earner collects, manages, groups and shares their badges. Badge earners will get to experience the Backpack, including:

  • Going to a site that issues Open Badge Infrastructure compatible badges like Webmaker;
  • Earning badges;
  • Setting up a Backpack account;
  • Pushing those badges to your Backpack;
  • Exploring the features available in the Backpack;
  • Explore additional features through paper prototypes.

In the process, participants will gain first hand exposure to the different components of the Backpack. By providing feedback of their experience, participants will be contributing directly to the features conversation and helping to inform prioritization of next steps.
