OpenVM micro-credentials at the EU Commission webinar

Open Virtual Mobility Micro-Credentials

Open Badges provide a digital, open and flexible way to define skills and competencies, identify them visually and issue proof of competency mastery to learners which can be accompanied by evidence.

Learners in OpenVM MOOCs – all available for free in the OpenVM Learning Hub – receive shareable digital proof of the skills  in form of micro-credentials based on the Open Badge standard. OpenVM badges are a granular form of credentials, each recognising a particular skill at a particular level.

In the OpenVM Learning Hub, OpenVM Credentials can be earned upon successful completion of a specific level of a mini- MOOC level. Each mini-MOOC ends with an OpenVM Credential which recognises a particular skill at Foundations, Intermediate or Advanced Level. Upon successful completion of each level of the mini-MOOC, the learner can earn an OpenVM Credential which certifies the learner’s competencies at a particular level.

On 11th May 2020, the Coordinator of the Open Virtual Mobility project – Prof. Ilona Buchem – presented OpenVM Badges in the webinar on micro-credentials hosted by the European Commission’s Directorate General for Education and Culture (DG EAC).
