Mozilla has announced the 1.0 release of Open Badges, an open framework for deploying verifiable digital recognition of achievements and awards. As the announcement explains, "With Open Badges, every badge has important data built in that links back to who issued it, how it was earned, and even the projects a user completed to earn it. Employers and others can dig into this rich data and see the full story of each user’s skills and achievements." Mozilla says there are more than 600 organizations using the Open Badges infrastructure, and they have issued more than 62,000 badges.
