Digital Badges

What are Digital Badges?

Digital Badges are micro-credentials -- mini-certificates  that you can earn in your courses at VC. The difference between a digital badge and a degree or program certificate is that badges represent a smaller set of skills like learning the basics of Electricity or how to operate a gantry crane. Digital badges can be posted to Facebook, placed in your LinkenIn profile, or embedded in your online resume. This gives prospective employers a better grasp of the actual skills that you have learned in your coursework.
