Digital badges are an online method of recognising, accrediting and displaying achievements, skills or participation. The Society badges received by our members acts as a verifiable record of their participation as a society committee member.
The badge can be claimed via a link that gives access to the Open Badges Passport, a mini e-portfolio system where one can store and display badges online. In practice, one can collect badges from multiple organisations, store the badges online and display them as one choose, eg. on website, social network or blog.
