Dallas Museum of Art:

The DMA has launched a groundbreaking program called DMA Friends that makes the museum free to everyone, and deepens its relationship with visitors and the community. Our team designed a badge-empowered engagement system available on iPad kiosks, SMS, and the web that offers visitors progressive levels of rewards and benefits as they engage with museum resources, events and the world at large. The backbone of the entire system is BadgeOS. The Credly Open Credit API is at the heart of the system’s automated badge sharing, sending credit received while interacting with the museum to social networks. Learn more about DMA Friends.


YMCA of Greater NY:

Childhood obesity is a huge concern, and the YMCA of Greater New York is doing its part to help address the issue. Inspired by the White House Let’s Move initiative, our team has worked with the YMCA of Greater NY to design and build a BadgeOS-powered mobile app that empowers teens to explore and record physical activities, build enduring fitness routines, and earn rewards that deepen their excitement and drive to keep moving. The Credly Open Credit API acts as the brains behind the sharing out of badges from the app to social networks and beyond. Here’s a short video about the project and its impact:
