Course Description: As a continuation of badge design work completed in 203, this advanced webinar provides a live, 4-hour session to build a prototype open digital badge with expert help. The session begins with an overview of existing badges platforms along with a demonstration to show the different functionalities of badges. The demonstration shows what it takes to build a badge in each of the covered platforms. Participants are then led in a design exercise to build a prototype badge.
