 Digital Badges

Digital badges are online credentials that demonstrate one's achievement of a particular skill or set of skills, and they are available in a variety of areas in education, business, industry, and academics. University badges may be displayed on online platforms, including LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and any digital badge backpack, such as Mozilla Open Source. University Badges may also be listed on resumes and CVs.
