Digital Credentialing for Higher Education
Increase student enrollment and retention rates while providing a seamless way for learners to record and share their validated skills and achievements with future employers.
We chose [Canvas Badges] for this project because it is open source, and is well suited for integration into a larger landscape of learning technologies.
An equitable future with achievement recognition
Badging made for everyone
Canvas Credentials—the world’s most open and inclusive digital credentialing network. Join us in creating a more equitable world through verified achievements and skills.
The great equaliser
Until recently, when it came to getting a job, there were two camps: those with degrees & those without. Now there’s badging—benefiting students, higher ed institutions, and job recruiters.
Easy and custom
Seamlessly issue data-rich, shareable, and verifiable badges with Canvas Credentials, the only open digital credentialing solution with visual and stackable learning pathways.
Curate, showcase, and achieve
Able to integrate credentials from other platforms, learners curate & showcase skills & achievements while employers & educators verify & leverage skills data to meet education & workforce goals.
Powerful and secure? Yes!
Used by thousands of organisations across the globe to issue digital badges and stackable micro-credentials, our secure platform connects learners to new education and employment pathways.
What’s in it for you?
Increase enrollment and completion rates
Attract and serve a larger number of diverse students by offering digital credentials to lifelong learners. Both students and employers benefit when learning can flex around life and when the results from the time invested can be verified and shared. Digital credentialing leads to both.
Create skills-based credential systems
Recognise & reward learners with badges.
Visualise, analyse, expand the community
Why digital badges?
To foster engagement & tell the full story
Progress in education doesn’t magically materialise at the end of a degree program. Badging allows you to recognise, validate, track, and share learning achievements from day one. Empower learners to tell their full story by giving them access to it.
By prompting, suggesting structure, and providing opportunities for students to collect and connect their experiences, we have a better chance of supporting their success.

Validate skills: Showcase workforce readiness
Digital credentials help translate learning outcomes into validated skills that both students and employers can understand. Badges give learners control over their learning and career path by clearly communicating the employer-valued skills they’ve either already demonstrated or still need to earn.
Digital credentials are advancing skills-based education and hiring
