Learn it. Earn it. Share it.

Digital credentials enable the data-rich recognition, communication, and tracking of achievement. We’ve partnered with Credly to issue portable and secure credentials that empower earners, make outcomes and skills more transparent, and allow you to gain actionable data and insights about how and where those credentials are being used.

Badge Anatomy

Badges are a combination of:

  • Product - color-coding
  • Solution - icon 
  • Category - shape 
  • Level - metallic accent

Badges get progressively more elaborate as the level increases
