Hello All,

Following up from the call today, I'd like to add an example use case for
endorsement that addresses some use cases the Badge Alliance working group
on (open badges) endorsement have been working on. For a full overview on
what the BA Endorsement WG has been up to, you can check out the draft of
their endorsement framework

A use case pulled directly from the framework,

A learner named Olivia is choosing among summer internships, some of which
> offer opportunities to earn badges that are endorsed by her school. These
> are badges that could be used to fulfill an interest-driven learning
> graduation requirement her district has recently implemented. With the
> additional information provided to her by the school’s endorsement of
> certain badges, her choice among internships may be made much simpler.

I'd like to see the above added to the examples in the use case document
with a reference to the ba endorsement wg origin of it (if that makes
sense, attribution wise?)
