At the end of each course offered by EduOpen, you will have access to both a traditional, printable certificate and an Open Badge, which certifies the activities you have carried out and the competences you have acquired.

What is an Open Badge?

Open Badges are digital micro-credentials which recognise skills and competencies acquired by educators and learners throughout their careers. To generate them, an Open Source format is used which Mozilla started to develop in 2012. Basically, an Open Badge is a sort of digital image issued by an institution to an individual on the basis of their achievements and competencies. Just like a photo, this image contains metadata which detail an experience made or a competence acquired by the individual who earns and exhibits the Badge.

EduOpen's Badges are supplied by Bestr, the Italian platform responsible for releasing Open Badges and for giving value to those competencies developed in a context of lifelong & lifewide learning. Discover all the EduOpen Badges available on Bestr here!

How does it work?

Every time you complete a course on EduOpen, Bestr automatically generates a Badge for you and sends you an email. You can then follow the steps outlined in the email – also detailed in this guide to picking up the Badge– to collect your Badge and set up a user account on Bestr.

If you already possess login credentials issued by IDEM and you have used them when accessing EduOpen, you can enter them on Bestr as well and so use the same username and password to work on both Bestr and EduOpen.
