TASK 5.2 (Dec 7th): Creating and Issuing the Badge
11. Using a graphic editing tool create a simple badge
Create as simple a badge (or group of badges) as you like. The badges should represent some learning. And it may be very simplistic, the point here is to create the badge(s). We can work on more complex graphics at another time. The graphic can be as simple as using Microsoft Paint to create a box, fill the box with color, and add a single word to the box. Be sure to save the badge as a png file.
12. Issue the badge
create an account on the open badging site http://badg.us. Follow the prompts on the site to upload and create a new badge. Issue the badge to me (peter AT rawsthorne DOT org) and other who have created badges on the badg.us site.
I have created a blog post describing my simple badge system. http://criticaltechnology.blogspot.ca/2012/12/implementing-really-simple-badge-system.html Once you have your badg.us and mozilla open badges accounts. Nominate me for one of the badges you have created.
Let me know if you require any assistance... more than happy to help out.
