What is badging?
A digital badge is a representation of an accomplishment, such as building a new skill, knowledge competency, attendance, participation, project completion, or a professional credential.
Each badge is made up of an image and evidence/information about the achievement. It also tells you what person or organization recognized the achievement.
Earning digital badges is a way for working professionals to document their professional development accomplishments. Once a digital badge is earned, a person can display their digital badges on web sites, resumes, and portfolios. For more background information on digital badges, please see the Mozilla Frequently Asked Questions document.
