See this article for more commentary on what a badge is exactly, including a more general idea of a badge, not necessarily an open badge.

On to the list of badges! This list also includes some sites using open badge’s close cousin, open credit. “Closed” in parentheses indicates that the badge is not Mozilla Open Badge nor open credit compliant:
- Khan Academy
- OpenAcademy – A US-Accredited High School Diploma!
- IP&T EdTec
- Mozilla Webmaker
Expect more familiar and mainstream names to pick this up soon. Numerous universities including well known ones like UIUC are picking this up in the near future as well as numerous businesses including Microsoft.
