A digital badge is an online representation of a skill you have earned. Open Badges allows you to verify your skills, interests and achievements through credible organizations. Because the system is based on an open standard, you can combine multiple badges from different issuers to tell the complete story of your achievements — both online and off. Display your badges wherever you want them on the web, and share them for employment, education or lifelong learning.
