What is a digital badge?
Representing your skills with a digital badge allows you to share your abilities online in a simple way, trusted and easily verifiable in real-time. Badges provide employers and peers with concrete evidence of what you had to do to earn your credential.
Digital badges contain metadata outlining three elements:
- Who: Learner details
- What: Course content details and date of course completed
- Issuer: Newtyne Consultancy and Training details
Who is eligible?
All learners who have completed a training course with Newtyne will receive an invitation to accept their digital badge(s).
If you have completed a course with Newtyne in the past and haven’t received an email reminder to collect your digital badge(s), please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Where can they be used?
Badges can be shared in your email signature, electronic copies of your CVs and on social media sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. Download our Digital Badging user guide here.
