What’s a Badge, and Why Do I Want One?
Badges are micro-credentials that clearly explain what skills you have demonstrated to earn them—specifically, what employers can expect you to be able to do.
The best part? No need to call the registrar for verified transcripts. Once earned and claimed, you own the verified data behind the credential and control who has access to it. The badge information is available 24/7 to anyone with whom you choose to share it.
There are lots of badges out there. Earn your badges from a name you trust and your colleagues will recognize: the University of Wisconsin–Madison!
