Digital Badges (Electronic Credentials) - DORS X701

Overview

Technology is trending toward the utilization of electronic credentials (digital badges) by educational institutions to augment traditional credentials such as paper certificates. A common way to describe a badge is a symbol or indicator of an accomplishment, skill, quality, or interest. Electronic credentials allow learners the ability to display verified skills and accomplishments on social media.

Destiny One Solutions partnered with Credly to offer an integrated way to issue digital badges to your learners. The badging feature enables units to create and issue badges for Certificate, Conference, Course Section, and Program (ISPM) offerings. Learners can then claim and manage their badges via their own Credly account.
