The great equalizer

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.

Why digital badges?

To foster engagement & tell the full story

Progress in education doesn’t magically materialize at the end of a degree program. Badging allows you to recognize, 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.

Translating achievements

Validate skills: Showcase workforce readiness

Digital credentials help translate learning outcomes into validated skills that both students and employers can understand. Badges give learners agency over their learning and career path by clearly communicating the employer-valued skills they’ve either already demonstrated or still need to earn.
