I am from Toronto, Ontario, Canada and work provincially in the field of adult literacy, supporting educators in their efforts to use technology more in blended ways to deliver adult literacy training to adults. We use the Moodle platform at my workplace, AlphaPlus, to deliver training and when we upgraded our Moodle site to 2.6+ badges and access to the Open Badges ecosystem became available to us. So I have been learning about badges since August 2013 and recently delivered a webinar to adult educators introducing the open badges concept.
Taking this course is a way for me to learn more and to get to know the P2PU environment and community as well.
Thanks for offering this course!
