Output O2 – Open Badge Infrastructure
While the current version of the Open Badge Infrastructure is fully operational, there are a number of technical issues that need to be addressed to improve the user experience within Europe. This output focuses on coordinating the efforts of the Open Badges community to provide the best possible infrastructure for Open Badges.
Use Cases (O2-A1)
The provision of the Open Badge Infrastructure started with the collection of Use Cases, i.e. the structured description of processes required for the design, delivery and exploitation of Open Badges. Use cases were used to integrate, configure and adapt the existing tools and services to match the elicited requirements. The requirements that couldn’t be integrated (for example, the backpack federation) were used to feed-in future developments.
Use Cases collected within the OBN project can be downloaded from here compiled in one file: Use Cases_for_OBN_portal.
Here from separate files:
Badge application for RPL
Building a portfolio from badges
Collaborative design of badges
Competency Framework 2016

Using badges as a way to express social or political statements

Infrastructure Implementation (O2-A2)
In the next step, based on the collection of use-cases, the next activity Open Badge Infrastructure Implementation, produced a specification of the European Open Badge Infrastructure in cooperation with the international Open Badges Community including the Badge Alliance. This specification was published for a public review. The specification was used to implement the European Open Badge Infrastructure.
Competency Repository (O2-A3)
Finally, the Open Badge Infrastructure configured the elements that were required or beneficial in the European context, in particular the Competency Repository which aimed at sharing competency definitions across different organisations delivering Open Badges. As there were numbers of options for making it possible, we were gathering recommendations of the Open Badge community. A demonstrator was provided as a proof of concept and we were looking for additional support from the developers community to move from the proof of concept to a full integration.
