Web Platform Unlocks Prospective Career And Learning Opportunities [Future Of Gaming]

The Open Badges infrastructure offers a web platform for unlocking new career and learning opportunities by making it easy to issue, earn and display various skill badges across the web.

In our research for the Future Of Gaming report, our consulting team noticed a growing tendency towards using gaming To Teach People New Skills. One example of this manifestation is The Open Badges Infrastructure-a web platform for unlocking new career and learning opportunities by making it easy to issue, earn and display various skill badges across the web. Created by the software application provider Mozilla, the platform enables any organization to issue badges to users for completing online courses, volunteering a set number of hours, or by fulfilling any other requirement backed by an institution (like taking online
courses in Photoshop or InDesign). Participants can then collect these badges and easily display them on their social and professional profiles and resumes. By creating a standard for displaying skills and achievements that traditional degrees and transcripts often leave out, the platform has the potential to create new opportunities for its community.
