    Hi, everyone, and welcome to the fourth post in our series featuring various people and their organizations across the state of Maine who are utilizing and leveraging digital badging since MSOL started up in 2015. (Click here to see our first, second, and third post in this series.)

    For this post, we’ll be highlighting the conversation we had with Brian Rahill: the CEO and co-founder (with Matt James) of CourseStorm – a startup that connects students to local, affordable education, much like Airbnb connects travelers with local, unique accommodations.  

    In addition to how CourseStorm has been using badges, we’ll also be covering Brian’s experience at the “Competency-Based Education & Digital Credential Design Convening”: a conference that was held in Denver, Colorado, all about reimagining systems that make learning that occurs anytime, anyplace, and at any pace count towards college and career readiness.

    Let’s get started!
