CREATE, STORE & SHARE EVIDENCE FEATURES
Digital badges recognise skills, participation, awards or workplace achievement and are flexible and easily shared.
Learners retain management and control over their digital badges after they complete their learning and can continue to add credentials to their digital backpack as they engage in lifelong learning.
Multiple badge agents
Using the Open Badges standard, multiple badge agents or issuers can be configured, allowing for flexible options when it comes to issuing digital credentials.
Credential templates can be tied to specific issuers – e.g., all credentials for the School of Medicine can be tied to the School of Medicine issuer account.
Or transition to a new badge agent, while retaining management and control of badges you’ve already issued through a legacy badge agent.
Multiple evidence sources
Rather than being restricted to recognising achievements for credentials using assessment items from a single course, you can recognise achievements and show proof of learning using assessment items drawn from multiple courses in a single credential.
This gives the learner broader and deeper evidence of their skills. This is especially useful when recognising 21st century skills, or durable skills, which are usually developed across multiple areas of study.
Evidence matrix builder
The Evidence Matrix Builder provides a flexible yet robust framework from which digital credentials can be created without the need for an existing rubric.
Instead, map the elements of the competency to assessment and evidence, with or independent of the learning management system (LMS).
Credentialate is expanding the scope of evidence beyond quantitative and qualitative feedback to dramatically enrich evidence with Artefacts. With Credentialate, you can upload and store personal artefacts for learners in the form of files such as videos, images and documents, to use as customised evidence of skills for a credential. Additionally, text – such as individual feedback – can be embedded in the record.
Artefacts can be uploaded and stored in Credentialate using the Credentialate API, and displayed as links in a new Artefacts section on the Personal Evidence Record where they can be shared and downloaded.
