Track your skills and make your mark in open education.

As a resource sharing community, OER Commons relies on the expertise of its members in order to thrive. Now you can identify this expertise in other users using OER Badges. To let the world know your strengths, earn one or more yourself. Badges are a way to track progress, to signify knowledge and to foster connections between users, all of which are critical to advancing open education.
