This is a great question. As I see it, democratized knowledge, knowledge networks and informal learning communities make up one of the central and most likely set of disruptive innovations. CBE, badges, blended and online learning, MOOCs, and the like all stem from these larger developments.

A new blog post from friend and colleague Serge Ravet over the weekend revealed some underpinning issues he has noticed in relation to trust when we talk bout badges and credentials. In this post he traverses trust and security as well as describing how the newly awarded DML funded project Open Passport will tackle some this. Thoughts?
