    Article Excerpts:

    “Although I love the freedom, flexibility and personalization of informal learning with my PLN on social media, I always felt that there should be a system for acknowledging that learning.”


    “DIY Badging System”

    “I had a vision, but I also had a steep learning curve to undergo in order to make it happen. I started with a company called Credly and a WordPress plugin of theirs called BadgeOS. Credly, is a free web service for issuing, earning and sharing badges. Their free plugin BadgeOS instantly transforms a WordPress website into a platform for recognizing achievement. I knew I had found the solution and although I had only basic familiarity with WordPress, I refused to let that stop me.”
