What are microcredentials? 

Microcredentials are recognized credentials awarded to learners for mastery of skills or concepts defined by industry and educators.

What is a digital badge?

A digital badge is a visual representation of a microcredential embedded with data to verify a learner’s skills and achievements. Criteria within each badge have been developed with industry input.

What are the benefits of digital badges?

Digital badges are:

Verifiable: Prospective employers or postsecondary institutions can identify who issued the badge, when and where it was earned, and what criteria were used to earn it.

Stackable: A set of organized microcredentials can be stacked to symbolize progressive levels of proficiency, complexity, and achievement.

Portable: Individuals can access their badges indefinitely and share them via social media or embed them in a resume for prospective or current employers or postsecondary institutions.
