    What is a digital badge?
    A digital badge is a validated acknowledgement of specific skills or knowledge a person gains across different learning experiences. A badge is one type of micro-credential that helps the earner represent these learning achievements digitally, using a branded symbol that the earner can share on professional and social networks of his or her choosing, and/or by email. Northeastern creates, shares, and issues digital badges through the Acclaim platform. This Lifelong Learning: On Demand course is not directly affiliated with Northeastern University’s College of Professional Studies learning assessments.

    What value does a digital badge have?
    Badges associated with non-credit, short-term learning experiences, including Lifelong Learning: On Demand courses, show the badge earner’s commitment to continuous learning around topics relevant to their personal and/or professional goals. Badges may also help career advancers highlight new skills, or network with others who share similar interests and experiences. For those considering a career change or an advanced degree, earning a badge is a great way to explore the topic in a low-risk way before making a bigger commitment or life change.
