Lately we've been preoccupied with getting a working proof of concept prototype for issuing badges in the Thimble and Popcorn editors. As I've talked about before, badges give you the opportunity to gain embedded assessment and real time feedback during your web making activity. Our goal is to get badges into Thimble by the Mozilla Festival, so we really needed a proof of concept as a jumping off point for us to move forward with iterating. Here is a demo of that prototype made by myself and Atul Varma:
You can check out the actual prototype: here: http://thimble-badges-movie.toolness.org/
The prototype doesn't represent the look and feel or the user experience design, however it does explore all of the different components of getting a badge within the editor and allows us to see what the touchpoints are for the end user.
