What is a Digital Badge?
Digital badges are credentials that seal in learning and represent skills or experiences that a learner acquires. These digital credentials differ from traditional certifications or degrees in that they are often:
- Quickly attainable
- Collectible and stackable with other badges into larger credentials
- They are sharable and searchable online to aid in self-promotion and discoverability
Digital badges that are certified by the IMS Global Learning Consortium as Open Badges, are built with skills-embedded meta-data that allow the credential to be secure, portable, and verifiable.
