Portfolio Studio Is Adding Digital Badges To Promote Your Accomplishments
Digital Badges recognize learning and are a valid indicator of the accomplishments and skills that you've gained in a course. On average, badges provide 30 times the data when compared with a traditional paper certificate. Professional development is easy to understand when there is specific information about course outcomes and competencies. Badges can be shared with your employer and through social media.
Data for Career Advancement
Starting in the fall, each Portfolio Studio course will include a digital badge. When a course is successfully passed, data rich credentials will provide descriptions, criteria, evidence, endorsements and more, all viewable in the credential itself. Each badge earned activates its own web page where students can share what they've learned and attach work from the course.
Employers are particularly interested in understanding what their employees are learning, and seeing evidence of that learning. A digital badge provides that information. Companies are 8 times more likely to sponsor your professional development when you can provide validation of your learning. Who knows how far you can go?
Portfolio Studio is the creative hub that connects pros with ambitious students for professional development and portfolio building.
