Digital Badges

An overview of digital badges, with links to further reading and open-source badging platforms.

Why use badging?

Digital Badges are a unique way to represent an achievement, much like "leveling" in a video or computer game. Many educators are turning to digital badges to mark their own and their student's accomplishments. Digital badges can be printed off in a certificate format, printed onto a sticker, or used virtually in a email signature line, website or learning management system.
