Open Badges Specifications

A repository for the main Open Badges specifications.

  • Assertion: Main specification for the badge data. If you want to understand how badges are made and verified, this is the place to look.

  • Baking: Badge “baking” is the process of embedding a badge assertion into an image (a PNG or an SVG) so that where ever that image goes, the assertion data goes with it and the badge can be independently verified.

  • Backpack [TODO]: A badge “backpack” is a web site/application that can take in & export badges. The Open Badges JavaScript API expects endpoints to be in specific or discoverable locations, and this document details that.
