What is a digital badge?

  • A digital badge is representation of an outcome or achievement. Our badges adhere to an open standard being led by the Mozilla Foundation for recognizing and validating learning. They are secure, verifiable, web-enabled credentials that employers can use to evaluate an individual’s accomplishments. The best part of a digital badge is that it's something you get to keep as an individual as recognition of your achievements in learning and professional development anywhere you go. It's up to you whether you’d like to take advantage and add this badge to your professional social networks.
