We plan to release Moodle badges with the upgrade to Moodle 3.1 at the end of the year. This will be done in liaison with key stakeholders including academic and professional staff who may be involved in recognising the achievements of students in an academic and non-academic context. Please note that badges will not be given for the completion of award courses however they may be awarded for completion of milestones within a course.
In preparation, we need to determine an appropriate model for awarding UniSA badges i.e. in what contexts across the University are badges likely to be awarded. To ensure the credibility of UniSA badges, the model will be supported by SAS and then linked with Mozilla Open Badges.
I would like to convene a working group to commence discussion and determine the UniSA badge model and associated governance. Please send me an email by Friday 12 August if you’re interested in participating.
