One of the features of CHiLO Book is the digital badge.
As shown in the image above, when you take the online test embedded in the CHiLO Book and make the grade, a digital badge is issued. But this system works only when CHiLO Book is registered as a course in Moodle. We call this “digital badge ecosystem.” From the issued badge, instructors can easily see which CHiLO Book the student has studied. By handing in the earned badge, the office will know which CHiLO Book the student had studied. In this way, the quality of education is assured.
The ecosystem of the digital badges completes this way.
Here is a demo of the digital badge system.
CHiLO Library has a lineup of free CHiLO Books we have created up until now. Take a look at the CHiLO Book “Rin Rin Princess” for example. This CHiLO Book was created by The National Institute of Informatics. Click the “Online-test” icon within the Book and jump to the test page. The test page is made using Moodle.
Log in and take the test. When you pass, the digital badge is issued. You can see all the badges you have earned in the “My Badges” page.
This system is made possible only when you combine CHiLO Book with Moodle. The steps to take the test are so easy that neither students nor instructors think they are accessing Moodle. Just read the ebook, take the test, and get the badge issued. That is all there is.
