Acclaim Digital Badging

Get the most out of your digital badges

Learners do more than just collect achievements with digital badges—they own and control their credentials.
Based on Mozilla’s Open Badges standard, Acclaim Badges allow academic institutions, professional associations, and organizations to recognize professional and experiential learning achievements and certifications. Upon successful completion, learners receive sharable, digital badges available and verified online for employers to identify qualified candidates articulate skill gaps.
Digital badges are available across a range of formal and informal settings—from college degree programs and vocational training to the new competency-based career education and third-party credentialing programs. Acclaim also provides badge earners with labor market insights that create connections between acquired skills and demand from employers.
