Open Badges 3.1 - Importance of a stable URL

The first of three screencasts on the basic requirements for setting a server to be a badge issuer. In this screencast I provide an overview of the basic server and configuration needs to issue a badge manually, and discuss the importance of a stable URL for the origin, criteria and evidence json attributes. This screencast is a part of a step-by-step guide built to support the onboarding of the non-technical OBI implementer.

Reflective Activity: Manually issuing a badge is not the only approach to accomplish this task? Can you think of one (maybe two) other ways to issue a badge using the OBI?
