Digital Badging

Badge-icon-3

Didgital Badging is Here!

Portable, sharable and most importantly, verifiable.

Features:

They can be verified by anyone at the click of a button

They are stored online in your own personal account for easy access

They can be attached to a document and shared on social media

They detail the criteria you met and the learning objectives that you achieved

They provide details of the Badge issuer for extra validity

They cost nothing! All costs are covered by the badge issuer (That's us!)

Digital badges (or micro-credentials) verify your achievements without the need for paper certificates.

Certificates are great to hang on your wall to recognise your achievements, but they have their downsides too.

Firstly, it’s a pain to gather them all up, scan them and send them to others as proof of your achievements (especially if you’ve got a whole stack of them). Secondly (and most importantly), it’s hard to verify them as true or valid. Very few people actually call the certificate’s issuer and check that the person did get the achievement; we just take people at their word and hope for the best.

This is why digital badging is so valuable!
