Getting started with Open Badges

Participants in these webinars and sessions will learn how to get started with Open Badges. They’ll find out what opportunities there are to collect badges, how to use SSSC Open Badges and how to display and share their badges.


To earn this badge you will need to:

  • take part in a webinar or session about using Open Badges in your learning – book a place here
  • download and read this Getting started with Open Badges hand-out
  • tell us about one thing you learned on the webinar or session that surprised you (25 words)
  • commit to collecting more Open Badges and tell us a little about how we can make this easier for you (25 words).


None. This badge does not require you to hold any other badges.


You will need to provide a few sentences about what you learned during the webinar/session. Please include the date of the webinar or session that you attended within your evidence.

If you want to use a blog or ePortfolio entry as evidence, you might find our guide to preparing and publishing your evidence useful. We will also accept short audio or video statements if you prefer these formats.

Remember, the evidence you provide will be viewable by anyone who you show your badge to. Please don’t include confidential or private information within your statement.
