Introduction to digital badges


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.

Our badges are built in mozilla open badge format which means they store certain bits of metadata that allows them to be verified and used anywhere that accepts this format. This includes being able to add them to badge “backpacks”, Job sites, social networks, portfolio pages, email signatures and a multitude of other places.
