Translate Learner Outcomes Into Opportunities With Digital Credentials

Scroll down

Translating learner outcomes into terms that employers can understand and trust is a challenge. Job-seeking students are eager to share what they know, but employers struggle to understand and verify their capabilities. Digital credentials provide a common language to bridge the communications gap between employers and prospective employees.

Credentials Help Students Tell Their Stories

From their first class, learners are acquiring the skills employers need. Digital credentials provide the proof learners need to build their professional profile. While pursuing a degree or certificate, students can leverage microcredentials and digital badges to find part-time employment, internships, and work-study programs that propel their learning and career pathways.

Digital Credentials Unlock Careers

Hard-working metadata aligned to specific job requirements and industry standards is attached to every digital badge you issue. This ensures your learners can put their hard-earned educational experiences to work. A comprehensive set of sharing, directory, and connectivity options on the Credly network puts the credentials your institution issues—and your students earn—front and center where career decisions are made.

Promote Your Higher Education Institution

Every time a student or alumnus shares a digital badge from your college or university, it’s a meaningful brand impression for your institution. More than 650,000 credentials are shared from Credly every month, making digital badging a marketing channel with ROI for your learning program.

Boost Student Engagement

Keeping students engaged to complete courses—especially in a time of remote learning—is hard. But, digital credentials give professors and faculty a way to recognize micro-learning in a format that students want.

Build for Success

When you start badging with Credly, you’re not in it alone. Credly’s customer success team helps you build and issue badges, map metadata to skills tags, and implement your program for success. The team also has years of best practices and resources to get the word out to students and faculty about your program.
