Translate Learner Outcomes Into Opportunities With Digital Credentials

    Translating learner outcomes into terms that employers can understand and trust is a challenge. Job-seeking students are eager to share what they know, but employers struggle to understand and verify their capabilities. Digital credentials provide a common language to bridge the communications gap between employers and prospective employees.

    Credentials Help Students Tell Their Stories

    From their first class, learners are acquiring the skills employers need. Digital credentials provide the proof learners need to build their professional profile. While pursuing a degree or certificate, students can leverage microcredentials and digital badges to find part-time employment, internships, and work-study programs that propel their learning and career pathways.

    Boost Student Engagement

    Keeping students engaged to complete courses—especially in a time of remote learning—is hard. But, digital credentials give professors and faculty a way to recognize micro-learning in a format that students want.
