You have the opportunity to demonstrate your achievements in this course by earning six digital badges, together with a DS4OERS Certificate of completion.

On this page, we explain how you can earn the badges and the certificate. To preview the badges and find out more about viewing and sharing digital badges, see Digital badges. To learn about obtaining and verifying your certificate of completion, see Certificate of completion.

Learning challenge badges

The learning challenge badges mark your progress through different sections of the course. There is a badge associated with successful completion of each of the following learning challenges:

  • Develop teaching resource including open image
  • Vector chart or diagram remix
  • Static audiographic remix
  • Lesson plan challenge

To complete a learning challenge, you will need to:

  1. Create an OER resource as described in the learning challenge instructions and
  2. Upload your OER resource to the relevant page of the DS4OERS Moodle site

Your resource will be reviewed by a teacher on the course. If approved, you will receive notification that the badge for that learning challenge has been awarded to you. This may take some time, depending on the time zone the teacher is working in, but will typically be done within 24 hours if received on a working day.

All approved resources will also be shared with other learners on the Moodle site.

If your resource is not approved, you will receive brief feedback on how to improve it, and an opportunity to upload it again.

Participant badge

If you successfully complete the DS4OERS Knowledge test, you will be awarded a DS4OERS Participant badge.

OER Practitioner badge and DS4OERS Certificate of completion

If you successfully complete the whole Digital skills for OER sharing course, by earning all four learning challenge badges and the Participant badge, you will also automatically earn an ‘OER Practitioner’ badge, as well as the DS4OERS Certificate of Completion.
