Simple platform based on WordPress that focuses strictly on issuing badges. It does not do any of the MOOC type things other platforms do. Also, WP Multisite/Networks allow you to administer several badge issuing units separately.- not actually a platform for non-seton hall BUT might be good to get insight into how they do it. They have people (staff, students) submit ideas for badges and criteria. But also things like a basketball fan.. -_- Unreachable as of March 2017. Delete?badges specifically for cultural experiences... also in Spanish - In early stages of development. Specially suited for museum visitors, from kids to adults, school groups, etc. with the objective of tracing and certifying every learning activity related to education & culture & tourism. - more of a group thing. So you must earn a badge and then are considered an 'expert' who can give them to others. They have schools and courses, but the entire platform is designed for peer to peer education and not corporate use like us.P2PU's badges are great for learning communities on the web. The learners determine which skills are important, and peers evaluate each others' projects. OBI compliant since March 2013, Badges are embeddable elsewhere as an iframe.
