Open Badges is the world's leading format for digital badges. Open Badges is not a specific product or platform, but a type of digital badge that is verifiable, portable, and packed with information about skills and achievements.

Open Badges can be issued, earned, and managed by using a certified Open Badges platform.

Want to build new technologies to issue, display, or host Open Badges? The Open Badges standard is a free and open specification available for adoption.
