A (partial) badge issuing platform comparison

Badge issuing platform comparison

Over the last few months, I’ve had a few meetings at my local high school. They’re interested in using Open Badges to accredit the school principles, and I’ve been willing to volunteer my time given my children will end up there! The project is currently on hold given the number of changes staff are having to deal with this year, coupled with the budget cuts the UK government are imposing.

However, as part of the ‘discovery’ phase, they came up with some requirements of a badge issuing platform, which I mapped against some of the better-known badge issuing platforms. I thought it might be worth sharing, as it could help someone. I don’t prefer or advocate any platform on this list, nor is it by any means comprehensive.
