UCD BadgeUCD is delighted to announce the UCD Digital Badges pilot project, launching as part of a range of activities related to the All Aboard project. The aim of the pilot is to use digital badges to complement the existing learning, training and professional development environments within UCD by recognising achievement, engagement and knowledge acquired through both formal and informal learning opportunities.

Participants will be provided with support and training on the use and deployment of digital badges for specific learning contexts. This pilot will run from Jan- Dec 2016 (Semester 2- 2015/16, Semester 1 – 2016/17). Dependent on context, both Blackboard Achievements & Open Badge Factory platforms will be used to issue and manage badges during this pilot.
