We’re always looking for innovative ways to empower educators to help their students succeed.
Digital Badging and Micro-Credentials provide a real opportunity to tap into changing student behaviours and guide educators into the future of education.
What are Micro-Credentials?
A micro-credential is a certification of assessed learning that is complementary to, or a component of, a qualification or skill. Effectively, a bite-sized chunk of a full-blown skill or credential – hence the ‘micro’ component.
Pyschologically the credential appeals to students because of its less daunting format; while the nimbleness of the content allows educators to provide more niched skills modules based on the requirements of students or their prospective employers! Micro-credentials are a massive-win for students, educators and employers.
What are Digital Badges?
Unlike the paper certificates of old – that inevitably end up in the bottom of a shoe rack – we help issue ‘digital badges’ for the achievement of each micro-credential.
Being digitally native, these badges lend themselves to appearing more easily on CVs, LinkedIn pages and more. Making the students’ credentials more visible and valuable, and giving them the best chance of successful employment!
How The Process Works With Learning Vault
We extract the core skills from a unit of competency and transform them into micro-credentials. This ensures education providers make their students as employable as possible with niched skills and competencies.
We not only offer our clients the ability to micro-credential any skills required for their students’ learning, but we also create the digital badges that can live proudly on their students’ respective platforms.
