ProExam White Paper Explains Digital Credentials and Open Badges

Posted in News

As digital credentials increasingly become an option for certification and other programs, Professional Examination Service has issued a white paper, Digital "Badges" Emerge as Part of Credentialing's Future. This ten-page resource examines the history of digital badges used to represent accomplishments, skills or knowledge; the evolution of static, image-based badges into web-based Open Badges that embed critical information in the badge itself; and how digital credentials or more targeted micro-credentials can be displayed as Open Badges and leverage that industry-standard infrastructure, with both issues to consider and benefits for employers, candidates and credential sponsors.
