Humber Launches Digital Badges for Fall 2018

Our flexible educational offerings allow you to focus on the skills and competencies you need by earning digital badges through courses, workshops, seminars and more. With our digital badges, Humber Continuing Education (CE) students have the opportunity to be on the forefront of professional and personal development.

What are Digital Badges?

A badge is a digital icon that represents a micro-credential recognized by Humber. Add digital badges to your online resumé, portfolio, LinkedIn profile or website. Readers can click on the badge to reveal imbedded information about the micro-credentials you've earned, where and when you earned them, and the competencies you demonstrated to gain them.

How Do I Earn Digital Badges?

Digital badges are earned by completing micro-credentials for skills and competencies gained through Humber Continuing Education (CE) workshops, courses and seminars. You may also be able to get credit for existing knowledge and skills via the Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) process and have that credit count toward a badge.

Beyond the Badge: Stackable Credentials

As more digital badges become available, learners will have the opportunity to combine individual badges they've earned to form larger badges that represent a more complex suite of skills or competencies. These are called "stackable credentials." You can also stack some badges to achieve larger credentials, such as diplomas and certificates.
