What is a micro-credential?

A micro-credential is a compact credential that verifies the achievement of in-demand skills and competencies.  Recipients can showcase their skills easily through social media platforms such as LinkedIn, to secure employment, or advance within their career.

Once you complete a micro-credential you will receive a digital badge.  A digital badge is a new type of credential that allows you to show specific skills that you have gained through learning experiences.  A digital badge is an icon but it is not a static image.  It is clickable and houses information such as the issuing institution, the date earned, the criteria required to earn the badge and the evidence that shows that you have met the required criteria.  Digital badges are dynamic credentials that you own, so you can decide how you want to use them.  Once you earn a badge you own it, so you may use it however you wish.  Digital badges can be put on social media sites, such as LinkedIn, added as a link on your digital resume, embedded in your e-portfolio and more.
