The Open Badges project is growing up. We’re now in our 5th year, so in many countries around the world, we’d be about ready to enter school. There has been a continuous community gathered around this technology from the very start, populated by dedicated individuals, organizations, companies, nonprofits, and foundations. We came together in 2014 to form the Badge Alliance, to stake a claim in this belief that when we build a distributed ecosystem of educational credentials together, we will give people the tools to manage their digital footprints themselves, without requiring a relationship with any one particular mega-corporation. We believe that by working together in the open, we can build systems that improve access and equity of educational and career opportunities.
