Digital Credentials in Higher Education

Let students showcase their achievements to highlight their credentials and appeal to potential employers.

Help students achieve their goals

Our digital badges let students showcase achievements across a range of formal and informal settings — from college degree programs and vocational training to new competency-based career education and third-party credentialing programs.

Learners can post their badges on email and social media networks, to highlight credentials and appeal to potential employers so they can reach their personal and professional goals.
