Comparison of Drupal Solutions to provide Open Badges

Open Badges are an interesting idea in learning/achievements/certification from the Mozilla Foundation. They are a decentralized system that can indicate something as serious or frivolous as the provider wants.

There are at least two ways in Drupal to show badges. This page aims to compare them to help people find which solution will work for them.

Are you an educator teaching Drupal at college level? Do you know an educator who'd like to teach Drupal?

I'm trying to reach educators who are teaching Drupal as subject matter at college level.

Cross-posting in a few places where it may not be directly related, but we too often focus on Drupal as an LMS, etc without attracting educators who could teach Drupal.

DrupalCamps + Training. Better Practices.

In the past ~1.5 years at Acquia, I've seen a bit of info about how to do Drupal training at camps that may be helpful to others. Please augment with your thoughts.

2. Training runs at market pricing, is arranged & marketed by Camp, and revenue is split (some %) between camp & Company
