Abstract
FooBadges is an initiative by Foo Café where the vision is to increase the participation in events at Foo Café and reduce the number of people who choose not to attend an event they have signed up for. To increase the participation in events at Foo Café and reduce the number of people who sign up for an event but choose not to attend, a proposal for an Open Badge-system should be presented. An Open Badge-system issues and distributes badges for users. The system called FooBadges would consist of a mobile application and a web application that would be applied as an add-on to the already existing web application that Foo Café uses.

FooBadges is an initiative by Foo Café where the vision is to increase the participation in events at Foo Café and reduce the number of people who choose not to attend an event they have signed up for. To increase the participation in events at Foo Café and reduce the number of people who sign up for an event but choose not to attend, a proposal for an Open Badge-system should be presented. An Open Badge-system issues and distributes badges for users. The system called FooBadges would consist of a mobile application and a web application that would be applied as an add-on to the already existing web application that Foo Café uses. In cooperation with the customer, it was determined that the mobile application should be developed for Android devices. The thesis maps various Open Badge-systems that are available on the market and, based on it, develop our own system for Foo Café using existing systems as a starting point. A survey to investigate why people sign up for an event but choose to not show up is also done and processed to investigate if it is possible to encourage people to attend events using an Open Badge-system. The thesis resulted in a prototype in the form of an Android-application and a web application that was incorporated into the already existing web application that Foo Café uses. In the Android-application, the user can log in to have the opportunity to sign up for various events and to check-in to an event at Foo Café. A user does no longer need to use a browser to sign up for an event and can instead use the mobile application. A user is also able to view all the badges that Foo Café has created and all the badges that a user has received. The user can thus check what is required to achieve specific goals to get rewarded with badges and check which badges the user has achieved so far. In the web application, administrators in Foo Café have the opportunity to create their own badges with specific criteria and design their own badges. Administrators also have access to a specific page contained in the Admin page, where an administrator receives a list of all users who signed up for an event and a list of users who attended the event and performed a check-in to the event using the mobile application that was developed. With the help of this information, an administrator can ensure that an attendee has been physically present and has attended the event. (Less)
