So, Digital Open Badges - What are they? For those not in the know, a badge is a symbol or indicator of an accomplishment, skill, quality or interest. Digital Open Badges are an online standard for recognizing and verifying learning. They allow recipients to use an image to quickly show off their skills and achievements.
At Accredible we are output agnostic, meaning that you can display your recipients credentials in a number of formats. So you can choose to display a certificate, a badge or both on the credential page.
Here’s an example:
Designing your badge
There isn’t a badge designer directly within Accredible that you can use to create your badge so you will need to use either your in-house design team, photoshop or a 3rd party designer.
The badge image must be square and at least 256x256 pixels in size.
This help page talks your through the specifications and offers some hi-resolution files you can use for your badge: https://help.accredible.com/hc/en-us/articles/212797289-Designing-a-badge
