Who has been awarded this badge?

To get this you need to complete Activity 14: Comparing MOOCs in Week 4 of the H817open course. You will need to blog your solution to this activity, and provide a link to this post as evidence. A member of the course team will then check the evidence, and if satisfactory, will issue the badge.

Applying for a badge

Once you have decided that you want to work towards a particular badge, make a note of the criteria and begin work.

This may mean engaging in a course or activity. The badge issuer may have been quite specific about how you could provide evidence, but if they haven't, you must decide how best to do it. Your evidence might consist of a reflective blog post, or a photo, a document, a diagram, a screen shot, or an activity stream and you will need to be able to link to all your evidence via one URL - so it needs to be held online somewhere.

If you have a number of different pieces of evidence that you want to submit, the easiest way of doing this is to set up a Cloud. Use the text box to describe your evidence and how it meets the criteria and then 'Add content', 'Add embedded content' or 'Add link' for as many pieces of evidence as you need. Then copy and paste the URL for you evidence Cloud into this page.
