Open badges are not open if they’re kept in silos

And so it begins…

Today, in the Open Badges Google Group:

Today I received a badge from Oracle via Acclaim (Pearson). My understanding of an “open badge” is that it is transportable, yet I am having trouble taking my badge with me — right now it seems my only option is to display it on Acclaim’s website. Has anyone else had experience with Acclaim?
