What Is a Digital Badge?

A digital badge is an online visual indicator that represents your skills, interests, and achievements. Digital badging makes it easier to keep track of your professional development. Instead of gathering certificates and letters of accomplishments to show to interested parties, you can simply supply a link to your badges. It’s a shareable, public image that validates and verifies your achievement.​ Learn more about digital badges.
