SlideWiki aims to revolutionize the way how educational material is
authored, shared and used.
Learning happens everywhere.
However it is often difficult to be recognized for skills and
achievements that are gained outside of school. Open Badges for
SlideWiki project is working to solve that problem by making it easy
for anyone anywhere to earn, and display badges in the SlideWiki.
Badges are a special or distinctive mark, token, or device worn as a
sign of allegiance, membership, authority, achievement, etc. The result
will be broad recognition of the skills and the experiences.
Badges are not assessments ..!!
Badges are the thing you get after you have learned something and
successfully demonstrated learning through an assessment. The
assessments are incredibly important because they are the evidence or
meat behind the badges.
