Open University Japan and Digital Knowledge developed an Open Badges 2.0 (OBv2) and 2.1 Reference Implementation Model Site called OBRIM using the latest modern application technology to promote IMS Open Badges specifications to potential IMS members like institutions and vendors in Japan. Most institutions and vendors are interested in OBv2, but face the issue of how to implement and integrate existing systems. OBRIM consists of a front-end single page application that runs on cross-browsers and a back-end serverless system. Serverless builds agility and modern applications with a lower total cost of ownership and simple system structure. OBRIM helps institutions and vendors in Japan implement IMS standards easily and rapidly, then they can focus on their core existing products without having to worry about managing and operating servers and runtimes. This overhead reduction helps them regain the time and energy they spend developing superior IMS standard products that are scalable and reliable.
