Passport is a learning and e-portfolio system that uses digital badges to demonstrate user’s competencies and achievements. Users can show off the badges they’ve earned through the public Passport profile in Mozilla Backpack, LinkedIn, and Facebook.
Passport is a flexible learning system that allows instructors to create a variety of digital badges to meet their course's needs, and allows for delivery of competency-based learning. There are four easy steps in the badge creation and delivery process.
Passport makes it easy to create interactive course content and assignments. Upload files, share links, and even write your own custom HTML. Deliver quizzes, video assignments, and file upload assignments using Passport’s feature-rich authoring tools.
Passport contains a flexible badge builder for easy creation of great-looking badges. You are guided step-by-step through the creation process and can select different styles, colors, icons, and text for each badge image. Passport also allows you to upload and use badge images created outside the system.
Passport provides a framework that guides users through learning activities. They are able to review supplemental material, submit content, complete quizzes or surveys, and gather instructor approvals.
