The Open Badges Project

Seton Hall’s “Pirate Patch” program is designed to be compatible with Mozilla’s Open Badges Initiative.

The Open Badges Initiative is based on the idea that learning today happens everywhere, not just in the classroom, but it’s often difficult to get recognition for skills and achievements that happen outside of school. Mozilla’s Open Badges project is working to solve that problem, making it easy for anyone to issue, earn and display badges across the web — through a shared infrastructure that’s free and open to all. The result: helping learners everywhere display 21st century skills, unlock career and educational opportunities, and level up in their life and work. Learn more here.
