Open Badges Learning Themes

To complete the envisioning step of Agile Instructional Design is to determine the main themes of learning. These themes are derived from the concept map, which was created from a quick review of the subject domain of open badges. It is for these themes that learning resources will be built. The themes are as follows;
  1. Who or What is the Badge Issuer? What do they need to exist? What technology do they need in place? What code, if any do they need to write to be an issuer?
  2. Who is the Badge Earner? How do they earn a badge? Where do they store their badges? As an earner is there technology i need to know how to use or code?
  3. Who or What is the Badge Displayer? What do they need to exist? What technology do they need in place? What code, if any do they need to write to be an displayer? Can a displayer also be an issuer?
  4. What technology Platform is required? How would I host an issuer, earner or displayer? Could I hack the platform myself? What specific technology skills are required? Would learning the following three technologies be enough to contribute to and utilize the OBI?
It is answering all these questions, are more, that will be the learning themes of the OBI for developers course being built from this initiative. Stay tuned as I move into the planning phase for this courses creation.
