What is digital badging?

A digital badge is a representation of an accomplishment, such as building a new skill, knowledge competency, attendance, participation, project completion, or a professional credential.

Each digital badge is made up of an image and evidence/information about the achievement. It also tells you what person or organization recognized the achievement.

Earning digital badges is a way for working professionals, like you, to document your professional development accomplishments. Once a digital badge is earned, you can display your digital badges on social networks, web sites, resume, and e-portfolios.
