DoIT Training Credly Badges

Digital Badges

DoIT Training is now issuing digital badges to award non-academic credit for training courses. Badges can supplement grades, resumés and other certifications to paint a more comprehensive picture of an individual’s experience. DoIT Training’s badges provide evidence of learning and what it involves, giving learners tangible recognition they can carry with them and share with others.

Who is using the badge system?

A number of organizations, educational providers, and communities such as NASA, Educause, Penn State, Adobe, the United States Air Force, and the City of Chicago, are all using digital badges to reward and recognize a variety of skills and achievements.

How does the badge system work for you?

DoIT Training’s badges are managed using the Credly system, a digital credential and badge service. Participants can display their badges in their portfolios, on resumés, and share them on social networks like LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter.

“Essentials” and “Pro” badges are available for most topics (listed below). Custom classes will not award badges, unless agreed with the instructor prior to classes. Classes finished prior to current version level are not included.

When a badge is awarded, the badge earner receives an email that displays the digital badge along with an invitation to save and share it. The first time this happens, the badge earner will need to set up a free Credly account to host the badge, but they will then have the ability to fully manage their badges, including how they are exported and where they are displayed.
