Digital Badges

Digital badges recognise skills and workplace achievements in an shareable format. They boost learner employability when contextualised with rich skills and job market data.

Skills recognition and credentialing

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 a digital backpack as they engage in lifelong learning.

Digital Badge Anatomy

Skills transparency

Credentialate makes learners’ skills visible throughout the learn-to-earn journey. It surfaces skills in a curriculum so they can be recognised in a digital badge and shared by the learner as proof.

Credentialate brings additional meaning to the generic digital credential by connecting personalised evidence of skills to recognise where each individual learner is now, and provides proof of their abilities.

Relevance and meaning

Credentialate’s Personal Evidence Record, embedded in a digital badge, includes qualitative and quantitative evidence, skill definitions referencing openRSD, the world’s largest open Rich Skill Descriptor (RSD) library, framework alignments and more.

It includes benchmark data so that all stakeholders – learners, educators and employers – can clearly see the learner’s skills and how they relate to work, further education or other opportunities.

Skill level context

Not all skills are developed equally. Skills in Credentialate’s Personal Evidence Record are aligned to frameworks that enable recipients to understand what level of skill the holder has in detail – potentially down to what industry, role or job title the attained skill makes the learner eligible for.

Flexible digital recognition options

Credentialate is uniquely flexible when it comes to digital recognition, and is capable of handling complex digital recognition scenarios.

These include multiple badge agents, multiple evidence sources, multi-year credentials, progression of learning and more.
