Recruitment begins for “2nd Open Badge Grand Prize”
……
The Open Badge Network, a general incorporated foundation that promotes the spread of open badges and ensures their quality, awards organizations that are making advanced efforts in issuing and utilizing open badges, and with the aim of promoting the further spread of open badges. We have started accepting applications for the Badge Grand Prize from July 1st.
Open badges, which have become common in Europe and the United States as a global standard for digital certificates of knowledge, skills, and experience, have become an effective tool in forming an ecosystem of education, training, and learning.
The number of member organizations of the Open Badge Network, a general incorporated foundation, has exceeded 300, and the popularity of the service is gaining momentum. A wide variety of badges are issued in Japan and Asia Pacific by a wide range of industries including companies, universities, certification bodies, and government agencies.
Therefore, following last year, we will award organizations that are making advanced efforts in issuing and utilizing open badges at the 2nd Open Badge Awards. We will also widely disseminate examples that have had an impact on the formation of the system.
