Frequently Asked Questions
Digital badges are web-enabled versions of a credential, certification or learning outcome which can be verified in real-time, online.
- Representing your skills as a badge gives you a way to share your abilities online in a way that is simple, trusted and can be easily verified in real time.
- Badges provide employers and peers concrete evidence of what you had to do to earn your credential and what you’re now capable of.
