Digital Badges

badge imageDigital Badges are online validations of learning experiences in the form of a symbolic image with embedded metadata that are granted when the Learner successfully completes a non-credit course or certificate.

A Digital Badge’s metadata includes secure details about the badge’s criteria, evaluation process, and provides evidence of the learner’s work. Digital Badges provide learners the ability to share verifiable records of their skills and competencies with individuals via LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, email and other social media networks, as well as online portfolios.
