I am using Moodle 2.5 and note that one can now include badges as part of the environment. These tie to the Mozilla Open Badge project. I am curious who is using badges in their curriculum and how well they are received. Obviously, we all receive badges as part of the Education Exchange.
I am planning to incorporate these in my fall classes. I am using Illustrator and Photoshop to create the badge (and properly size it) and Moodle to distribute them.
I do realize that one must have a good understanding of the psychology/ motivation behind offering students a badge for completing a given task. That being said, I am curious as to how this is being pursued by others (and what the results have been).

I am curious what your thoughts are with respect to the myriad announcements made at AdobeMAX on May 6, 2013? This ranges from the futuristic (like project Mighty and Napoleon) to the future of Fireworks (http://blogs.adobe.com/fireworks/2013/05/the-future-of-adobe-fireworks.html).
Obviously, a number of changes are coming with CC (including changes to how software is distributed).
How will these changes affect your programs?

In his recent book - The Truth about HTML5, Luke Stevens argues that many of the HTML5 elements (header, footer, nav, section, aside, for example) should not be used nor taught in our classes. He believes that most browser manufacturers will not implement these elements in any future releaseand they are artifacts from discussions of many years ago. What are your thoughts on this matter? Should we be teaching these elements? Why or why not? As far as I know, most of the elements in the above list are not recognized by any modern browser. Luke argues we should be using ARIA roles instead. Yes, these elements are included in Dreamweaver CS 6.
