Tom Holland spoke on "Portability of Achievement - Open Badges in Assessment", at the e-Assessment Association / Assessment Tomorrow conference, in America Square Conference Centre.

The e-Assessment Question is an annual conference and exhibition organised by the e-Assessment Association and Assessment Tomorrow. The 2013 event was such a great success, with delegates from 10 countries hearing two days of thought provoking and rewarding presentation,  and participating in sessions that positioned e-Assessment at the heart of qualifications and certification.

The theme for 2013 year put assessment and e-Assessment into the broadest arena, looking at how the technologies, techniques and tools of e-Assessment allow us to work beyond the natural confines of the examination room, the single discipline subject and confines of conventional paper and pencil.

Tom Holland, MyKnowledgeMap's Technical Marketing Manager, addressed the conference as part of a panel on 21st-Century Approaches, and set out a vision for how Open Badges could be used by awarding bodies as part of an e-assessment solution. The talk covered a major implementation of the Mozilla Open Badges technology in the healthcare sector which MyKnowledgeMap are currently working on.
