Plan, Draft, Award, And Earn Badges
Disintermediation rolls on. In the arena of education, the next target is certifications, diplomas, and other ‘official’ records of learning, knowledge, and skills achievement. Learning is omnipresent; it takes place everywhere, round the clock and not merely in traditional settings (training classes and schools) at times stipulated by conventional providers (educational institutions/employers). The major challenge is to credential this never-ending learning and to make these credentials portable and available.
EbizON works toward widespread recognition of a credentialing system, which utilizes badges from providers that are awarded directly to the learners, displayed and maintained by learners, independent of employers and are publically available.
With new standards and programs emerging, digital badges help students prove what all they have learned in and outside. EbizON specializes in Open Digital Badging services. We, at EbizON, help organizations build badges, create digital portfolios, and access & identify new skills.
Ebizon has left no stone unturned to explore how digital media is revolutionizing the way young people learn, participate, play and socialize in the civic life. The objective is to make education massively powerful for all students via creating more prospects for youth to engage in learning, which is pertinent to their lives and prepares them for nothing else but success in school, community and workplace.
We strongly believe that the world is in the midst of a reinvention of how learning is created, accessed, organized and shared that has great implications for institutions of learning – universities, libraries, schools, museums and more. Digital media renders the promise of new learning process that nurtures and acknowledges individual talent, interest and skills. Open digital badging initiative in digital media and e-learning strives to drive positive change in education that builds on innovative modes of learning observed among students and young people using digital media.
