Why we love digital badges

Not all learning happens on paper, gaining skills and knowledge is a very human activity that deserves to be celebrated!

Outside of formal qualifications, exams and tests, individuals are constantly evolving through everyday work, volunteering in communities, attending events, and interacting with new ideas – but how can we recognise and mark all this ‘extra stuff’ in a lasting and meaningful way?

We believe that digital badges are the answer.

You can write a badge about anything, and award it to anyone that has achieved the specified criteria. Whereas an old-fashioned certificate may just title the activity and the date that it was achieved, a digital badge clearly displays the earning criteria and skills involved in completing that activity, immortalising it online and giving earners the power, tools, and language to articulate their experiences when seeking future opportunities.
