- What is a digital badge?
A digital badge is a portable online data object which represents an outcome or achievement. They are secure, web-enabled credentials that contain granular, verified information employers can use to evaluate an individual's potential.
- How does my credential get displayed as a digital badge?
edX and IBM have partnered with Credly to leverage their platform to translate your learning outcomes or experiences into the digital badges. This allows the badge earner (you) to accept, manage and share your digital badge and the credentials it represents as a digital asset.

Credly is a digital badging platform (formerly known as Credly's Acclaim platform). Its focal point is an enterprise-class badging platform built in compliance with the IMS Global Learning Consortium Open Badge Specifications to support the specialized needs of credential issuers, employers, and professionals. The Credly web platform provides a secure means of storage, transport and credential publishing that adds a layer of protection against those who may falsely claim high-stakes credentials.
