Digital credentials for all your design training and personal development.

Being recognised for the effort you put into developing your skills and capabilities as a designer is important in your career, in winning freelance work, and in your professional growth.

micro-credential is like a mini-certification. The notion is that they are usually digital, short, and very inexpensive courses that focus on establishing expertise in a given area. Micro-credentials can be earned in a variety of ways, including by completing a course, a series of modules, or a standard assessment.

Digital badges are simply a visual representation of a micro-credential. Learners receive a digital badge once they have demonstrated proficiency in the relevant skill. Badges can be shared on social media, included in email signatures, shown on resumes, and stored in digital badge wallets.

A digital badge isn't just a pretty picture.

It's backed up by a framework of metadata, which contains information on the issuer, the person who acquired the badge, the requirements for earning it, and proof that the requirements were met. In comparison to a physical certificate, this metadata allows digital badges to be easily validated as genuine.

For designers

University degrees and many authorised courses can take years to complete and, as much as we hate to admit it, aren't always enough for a given job. Micro-credentials, on the other hand, can be gained in just a few weeks. Often, they are made for a specific industry, so you can pick and choose micro-credentials to build a portfolio of marketable skills that meet your needs.


Recognise Achievement

Digital badges can be used to recognize any achievement, from passing a class to completing a training course.


Demonstrated Growth

Collecting badges is a common practice to illustrate skill accumulation culminating in mastering a concept.

For employers

Digital credentials allow you to verify that your employees and candidates have acquired the skills and capabilities you need. Learning has changed drastically in recent years in terms of how it is conducted, accredited, and recognised. Employers seek to hire people with specific talents and up-to-date training as the speed of technological innovation continues to accelerate. Professionals and job seekers, on the other hand, are frequently short on time.


Find skilled candidates

Digital badges help employers to find candidates with the right combination of skills. 


Up-skill employees

Micro-credential programs can be used to up-skill existing employees or train transitioning employees.

They are backed with metadata that contains all of the necessary information for employers to validate candidates' skills, such as the credential, the criteria to earn it, the date issued, and the issuing organisation. 

For training providers

Micro-credentials aid in bridging the skills gap that has developed between people and the fast-paced environment in which they work. As a result, digital badges are being used in a variety of disciplines, including short courses, corporate settings, informal learning settings, and education at all levels.


Approve faster

Micro-credentials enable educators to quickly respond to industry needs by creating programs faster and more aligned to current needs. Micro-credentials can be up and running in a matter of weeks.


Build credibility

Micro-credentials are a valuable building credibility and raising awareness for any training program. They can also generate engagement by being a gateway to other credentialing programs.
