Microcredentials and digital badges are a tool that can be used to acknowledge a learner's mastery of small, granular pieces of knowledge or demonstrated achievements or skills. Digital badges are a visual indicator of an earned microcredential and they are embedded with verified metadata, which makes them shareable across social media and the internet. Digital badging is available to all faculty, students, and staff on all IU campuses.
