At P2PU, learning is guided by people, passion, and projects. We’ve created this Badge platform to spark feedback between Experts and Learners about their learning projects. A Badge is symbol of mastery that comes out of those conversations. Here you’ll find out how Badges work, and some resources to build your own.
Her learning project is to start a Wikipedia article, improve another Wikipedia article demonstrably, and make more than 200 edits to Wikipedia.
In her course, she clicks on the "WikiSOO Burba Badge" in the left column and applies for the Badge.
When she submits her project, she is prompted to walk through the steps she took to accomplish the task, and to reflect a bit about what she would do differently next time. She clicks "Submit Project."
Peter, an Expert at the SOO Burba Badge (meaning he created it or he has been awarded it already) gets a notification that a project has been submitted and looks over Christina's project.
He then gives her qualitative feedback to improve her project in terms of "Kudos" "Questions" and "Concerns."
Since she has met the requirements to get the Badge, Christina is notified via email that she is now an Expert. The Badge now appears in her profile, and she can award the Badge to others. She can also push the Badge to her Mozilla Open Badges Backpack. Huzzah!
