What are Digital Badges?

Digital badges are a virtual acknowledgement of an earned credential, demonstrated skill or professional achievement, along with many other uses. Every badge earner has a portfolio (known as a ‘backpack’) of evidence with each awarded badge, backed by machine-readable metadata.

Digital badges are portable, sharable and most importantly, verifiable.

How do they work?

For employers, these digital badges provide a verifiable source of truth for a prospective employee’s achievement.  

For earners and learners, these badges are easy to share on professional profiles like LinkedIn , and hyperlink in resumes.

For educators, the benefits are very rich in brand exposure through sharing and click-through functionality, directing the prospective student from the badge to an enrolment.

How the Process Works with Learning Vault

Verifiable

Every credential holds within it data that relates to the achievement – or activity – of the recipient. Being able to verify in real-time, through Australian servers, what a badge holder has achieved, when and by which organisation. This means that the credibility of the award or credential is maintained.

Drive More Growth

Every achievement is an opportunity for viral growth, as badges can be shared through social media by the recipient. Badges help you ensure that more achievements are shared and promoted.

Generate Valuable Data

Credentialed programs generate more detailed and frequent data points to help you make better decisions.

Increased Visibility

Credentialed professional development programs allow people to actually review what was required for the credential to be awarded – whether that be a 2-hour course on ethics or a 12-month program on leadership. The power of visibility means that achievements are valued.
