Digital Badges Program
Earn the recognition you deserve
A digital badge indicates an accomplishment, skill or quality that can be earned in many learning environments. Digital badges are nowadays being used for identifying and validating a rich array of people’s skills, knowledge, accomplishments, and competencies. Digital badges inspire new pathways to learning and connect learners to opportunities, resources, and one another. Surveys have shown that digital badges:
- Promote a continuous learning mentality,
- Increase completion rates of learning programs,
- Increase engagement within the community
Learning Actors have partnered with Credly and bring the power of the Acclaim platform to all members of its learning community; both learners and instructors. The digital badges issued will act as a recognition of skills, achievements and contribution that each member of the community demonstrates.

Participants of our courses will receive digital badges based on specific criteria. Often these criteria might include not only participation to a particular Learning Actors program but also passing successfully an associated accreditation exam
