Welcome to the Acclaim blog! If you’re here, it means you know a little something about Open Badges, or you’ve come across some of our early discussions out in the community. Either way, we’re glad you’re here. Here’s a quick overview of what we’re up to…
The Acclaim vision is to help individuals get better jobs. Plain and simple. While our aspirations are to accomplish this through a variety of means, right now our focus is on helping individuals tell their professional story through badges. We’re partnering with leading institutions, organizations, associations and brands to translate learning outcomes and experiences into web-enabled credentials that can seamlessly be validated and evaluated.
Stated another way, we are offering an enterprise-class platform that leverages Mozilla’s open standard to help individuals demonstrate their skills and broadcast their potential.
For badge earners, we hope you’re as excited to start collecting and sharing your credentials as we are to help you do so. For badge issuers, we’re looking forward to working with you to create professional opportunity for your learners. And for employers or others involved in professional networking, we think you’re going to love being able to verify certifications and achievements quickly and in a trusted fashion.
