The BadgeOne server was developed by IBL Studios Education with GW Professor Lorena A. Barba in an advisory role, and with financial support from edX. The project has its origins in the first integration of open badges in the Open edX platform, in November 2014.
Now BadgeOne includes an API. This API will allow you to integrate the BadgeOne server into your own applications.
Along with the badge server, IBL and edX have developed an XBlock that allows connecting securely an Open edX platform with the BadgeOne server.
