Open Badges is the name of a group of specifications and open technical standards originally developed by the Mozilla Foundation with funding from the MacArthur Foundation.[1] The Open Badges standard describes a method for packaging information about accomplishments, embedding it into portable image files as a digital badge, and establishing an infrastructure for badge validation. The standard was originally maintained by the Badge Alliance Standard Working Group,[2] but transitioned officially to the IMS Global Learning Consortium as of January 1, 2017.[3]



Unlike the digital badge, the open badge is a digital badge that respects the principles of open standards established by the Mozilla Foundation for the web industry.
