What’s a digital badge?

Think of them as stackable credentials. Each digital badge represents a special area of achievement. Students use them to document particular accomplishments – at school, at work, and in the community. Instead of a patch to sew on a sash, digital badges are web links that can be attached to a resume, portfolio, or anything that accepts links. Learn More @ OpenBadges.org

Digital Badges Available for Students

The initial four digital badges will be based on specific instructional areas in economics, communications, emotional intelligence, and professional development. These areas represent content that is covered in most business and marketing programs. Criteria to earn a digital badge for an instructional area will involve passing a 25-30 question on-line exam. Additional badges based on individual instructional areas will be added throughout the first half of 2015 and will include selling, financial analysis, and promotion. Learn More @ MBAResearch.org
