About this Program
Does your organization help students or employees upskill or reskill? Your institution can issue branded microcredentials and digital badges to help learners highlight their new competencies. Learners can use these alternative credentials to verify their achievements for online resumes and stand out on career sites like LinkedIn. Employers can use microcredentials to find workforce-ready job candidates and to help recognize employee development in the skills-based economy.
In this one-course specialization, you’ll explore the concept of portable, open-source digital badging. You’ll learn to use a digital badging system, design your own badge, and understand how to help learners share the credentials they earn. You’ll also create a plan to implement a microcredential program for your school or enterprise.
