The First Six Badges of the Open edX Universe


The first Open edX-based badges or micro-credentials are being issued this weekend by George Washington University’s MOOC “Practical Numerical Methods with Python”, run by the innovative Professor Lorena Barba. IBL Studios Education developed an XBlock and created the  layouts of the badges.
