Digital Badges

Digital badges are clickable images that represent something significant a person has learned or done.  More precisely, they provide verified recognition of skills or achievements not represented by traditional credentials.  Transcripts and resume line-items only go so far; digital badges share more information, including the criteria for earning the badge and the evidence provided by the earner.   LinkedIn is a popular location for displaying badges.

Notre Dame issues badges primarily to publicly recognize student attainment of often-invisible skills.  A wide range of programs and offices use badges for motivation and recognition.  Earners most commonly use ePortfolios as a way to display the evidence needed to earn their badges.  We refer to the this integrative initiative as E2B2 (ePortfolios with Evidence-Based Badges).
