What is a Digital Badge?
|A digital badge is a portable and visual representation of the professional skills or expertise you've gained from a course. It includes details of earning criteria such as defined competencies, course activities, and experiences.|
|A digital badge comes from a credible source, is encrypted and can be verified with one click. It is much more difficult to counterfeit than paper. We are working with eCampus Ontario to establish a standard framework for digital badges across higher education institutions in Ontario.|
|Your digital badges will be hosted on a platform and through the platform you can also choose to display your digital badge on your other online pages such as:
Our Digital Badges
Digital badges are stackable. This means that the digital badges you earn at HLLN can be combined or "stacked" towards a professional certificate representing a milestone achievement. You can earn three types of digital badges: fundamental and advanced skills badges that highlight a workplace applied or clinical skill, or a professional certificate badge that highlights a thematic set of skills needed to perform a specific role.
You may receive 1-2 digital skills badges upon completion of a course, post-course online assessment. These skills badges can be stacked based on a learning pathway towards a professional certificate.
