Sunday Nov  9 was the end of week 3 of EVO Moderator training, and part of that week’s training was on raising awareness of the potential of badges. Learning2gether invited Hope Kandel to come talk to the group on Credly, LearningTimes’s entry into the range of badge ecosystem options. We also took the opportunity to thank Hope, and the LearningTimes team, for extended use of the Bb\Collaborate Elluminate room which they have provided us free of charge for the past decade. We appreciate their support, and were very interested to learn how we could use Credly and badges in general.
