"... we will be retiring the Mozilla Backpack and helping users migrate to Concentric Sky’s free and open Badgr platform."

If you are like me and already have badges in Backpack you might not have heard about this yet. So far, I don't think they've distributed any documentation on how to migrate or merge from Open Badges to Badgr. But there is a 53-minute recording of a session Getting Started with Badgr in Canvas - YouTube from August 15, 2018, by Concentric Sky.


Also, if you're wondering which badges platform to use in your courses this might help in the decision.
