I am very familiar with #Blockcerts and the current #Openbadges standards. Still thinking too complicated. I literally mean leaving a comment on a blog that sends a webmention back to another blog. A souped up pingback if you will. That is all you need and with a bit of metadata, not the crazy complicated JSON-LD…

Stackable credentials shouldn’t be hard. In fact the university should make the brand the process. I think they could even use something as simple as two permalinks to credential students on a #DOO here is my thinking: https://archive.jgregorymcverry.com/can-we-have-an-indieweb-webmentions-credentialing-system-openbadges/ What if to credential someone a university just sent a webmention to the place on student’s website…

@mweller @morrispelzel I built my first e-porfolio system using HyperCard a long time back. I wanted to replace the writing folders that just gathered dust as they followed students around.

@iamjessklein @toolness @GregorLove @t @araonpk @wiobyrne @zegnat @chrisaldrich @gwg Many of us have been thinking how webmentions could create the most light weight credentialing platform out there. Here are some of my thoughts: https://archive.jgregorymcverry.com/can-we-have-an-indieweb-webmentions-credentialing-system-openbadges/ Please come hang with #IndieWeb like all Open Source desperate for design contributions. Need help recruiting in your community.

Never really had a post go viral on LinkedIn (if 700+ could be considered viral) but my post on webmentions and credentialing is the most active post I have ever had: https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6405191090282074112 #OpenBadges #Edtechchat

Control not Disruption as My #IndieWeb Goal

I hate disruption. The word, not the noun. Disruption occurs everywhere but it is rarely a goal we should strive for in education.
