Issuing Digital Credentials and Badges For Non-Credit Training Programs
Tue 15 Oct, 2019, 11:00–11:50
Presentation Description. Please provide a brief description of your session. This description will be used to describe your session in the conference program.
California State University Dominguez Hills explored issuing digital credentials for non-credit programs. After extensive research, the Extended Education unit elected to work with Parchment. The objective was to issue digital credentials easily accessed by the learner and easily shared on social media networks, and provide more in-depth details with the ability to mouse over an awarded badge icon to display metadata embedded within. The badge would include relevant course information, learning objectives and learning outcomes. The information could be accessed by an employer reviewing the submitted credential for a new hire, promotion or pay increase, revealing more data than a paper certificate can convey.
The project to date as been successful, but it was not all "rainbows and unicorns." Learn how CSUDH worked with Parchment's technical team to bring the project to fruition through frequent communication and collaboration. The session will cover lessons learned, best practices and next steps.
