Clinton Global Initiative Supports Mozilla Open Badges

BILL BACKS BADGES: Former President Bill Clinton is teaming up with the MacArthur Foundation, HASTAC, and Mozilla to support the latter's Open Badges project. The collective has committed to scaling the program to assist 1 million students and 1 million workers by 2016. DePaul University in Chicago has already begun to accept badges as college credit.  

The badges cover a broad breadth of skills--anything from video editing to EMT training--whether they are learned in a classroom or self-taught, and are useful to both students applying for college and prospective workers applying for jobs. You can check out our detailed look at Open Badges here.
