About the Digital Badges in Education Market

A digital badge is an indicator of skills and accomplishment earned in a learning environment. Digital badges are also known as open badges, micro-credentials, and educational badges. These badges display interactive images that are posted on web pages and linked to data such as issuer information, criteria, curriculum, rubric, evidence, expiration date, learning pathway, and time of issue. In the education sector, digital badges are primarily used as motivational tools or as evidence of proficiency. Badging systems in education will allow students to gain valid certification of education from associations or organizations other than educational institutions.
Digital badges hard-code the metadata for future access. Since the system is based on an open standard, learners can combine multiple badges earned from different issuers. The technology is necessary to support student learning. This has shifted from traditional pedagogy to various online and offline sources of learning. Students now learn through a variety of knowledge streams, including media, community efforts, group projects, and interest-based learning.
