Should Trailhead use Open Badges?

Trailhead is a great addition to the SFDC learning platform.  And given SFDC's long-standing tradition of supporting standards and cross-platform integration, I think it would be really neat if the Trailhead badge infrastructure was built on top of the Open Badge Alliance (http://openbadges.org/) OBI standard.  Then SFDC badge earners could have many more ways to make their accomplishments visible externally.

What do you think?

I think that would be really neat.  I'm not sure who you could reach out to and have this filed as an official request.  I would start with a IdeaExchange post and see if it gets any traction from there.  Maybe tweet @salesforce and @salesforceDevs.  I would upvote an Idea if you posted it.

@Harshit, I'm pretty active in the BA community, so if you guys are interested in learning more, I suggest you just drop by our weekly Community Call that happens every Wednesday @ 9:00 AM PT.  Details are here (http://bit.ly/OBCommCalls)  You can ask just about any question you want, and you'll get really honest answers right away.  The team is just wrapping up work on a first release of directory and endorsements standard.  You can read more about the working groups here (http://www.badgealliance.org/working-groups/).

Thanks looks like we are not going to that path in near future, but if we get plan down the road, we will touch the base with community.
