Open Digital Badges

Digital badges represent a learner’s knowledge, skills, and experience in a subject area. Digital badges are portable, show proof of learning, and can be shared with stakeholders including: parents, administrators, and others within the community. Educators can post these badges to show professional qualifications and proof of their skills on résumés, social media, professional portfolios, employment applications, etc.

Optional University Professional Development Units


Our partnership with WASC-accredited University of the Pacific enables educators to earn university-based professional development units for their learning. Our collaboration further validates the rigor and relevance of our badge courses and third-party credentialed review process.

"I didn't even know that I could upload my Microsoft Word documents into Drive and convert them into Google Docs. I thought I would have to retype every single document. I didn't think I'd ever have the spare time for that!"
- Elementary Teacher
"I think describing Google Drive as a cabinet of storage will help me to explain to my students the importance of being organized. I'm very excited and can't wait to get started!"
