What is micro-credentialing?
A micro-credential is a digitally-recorded recognition of a small, specific skill. It is a portable communication tool that represents evidence of your skills for employers, educators and peers.
Micro-credentials are different from more traditional learning experiences. A micro-credential takes an opportunity to recognize smaller bits of learning, which can then be ‘stacked’ to create a ‘pathway’ of learning to demonstrate a broader base of knowledge. They are designed to fit in with busy schedules and adapt quickly to the changing needs many educators face.
Choose learning that fits your interests and schedule
Hāpara micro-credentials are short, competency-based learning opportunities that are closely aligned to the needs of educators. You choose the pathway that fits your needs.
Receive recognition of your skills
Digital badges record and recognize your achievements. Instead of a digital image, they contain verifiable data of how you earned the credential.
Stack your learning
Micro-credentials can be stacked toward higher-level micro-credentials, showing evidence of proficiency and advanced skills.
Share your achievements
You can add badges to your social media profiles, share with employers and others in your network. Badges give context to a resume by displaying your specific skills and provide secure proof of performance criteria to employers of your abilities.
Why a digital badge?
A digital badge is the representation of your mastery of a micro-credentialed course. Only those who had their skills assessed will be able to earn a micro-credential and display its badge. Badges have metadata that include proof of ownership and a description of the mastered skills.
