More than just stickers

Micro-credentials are a representation of a competency or achievement earned through participation, progression, completion, and demonstration of learning.

Micro-Credential Badges in Brightspace:

  • Are created using the Open Badges specification managed and advanced by the IMS Global Learning Consortium
  • Contain metadata with key information including how the learner earned the badge, the associated skills and competencies, and verification of the issuing organization
  • Can be shared by the learner across a variety of platforms—such as portfolios and social media—and with specific individuals or institutions

Credentials Offering

Your consulting engagement will be tailored to meet your specific needs based on the following areas of focus:

Credentialing Strategy

A well-defined credentialing strategy will make sure that you are using the right credentials to help your learners demonstrate achievement. Our team will partner with you to understand your goals and analyze market trends to identify opportunities for differentiation. We will then help you develop a rollout and communication plan for your credentials program.

Instructional Design Consulting

The effective use of credentials will help stimulate learner motivation and engagement. We will work with your team to identify your use cases for credentials and help define the skills and competencies associated with each one, providing recommendations on how to assess completion.

Micro-Credentials Design

Professionally designed badges will help learners stand out from their peers and inspire them to expand their skill set. Our creative team will help you create a portfolio of up to six custom-branded badge styles and up to 18 icons to complement the badge styles. When your badges are ready, you can quickly and easily modify, replicate, and share them using the Brightspace Awards tool.
