We live in a visual world where people make snap judgments about quality based solely on aesthetics. This means that the first impression formed on the quality of your digital badge program may likely be based on your badge’s artwork. It’s hard to imagine that this small digital artifact could have such influence, but it does.
Digital badges, also known as micro-credentials, are visual representations that showcase achievements or display that specific knowledge, skills, and abilities have been acquired. These badges can be instantly verified in your portfolios, websites, and more. Badges can also be used as a learning base to determine whether an individual has the skills and knowledge required to build upon what is required to close a knowledge gap.
What are Badges?
Badges are small rewards that learners can earn for completing tasks or mastering certain skills. In online learning, they are typically displayed as small icons or logos in a learning environment.
Spenowr introduced a new feature like digital badges for their artists.
Digital badges is an indicator of accomplishment or skill that can be displayed, accessed, and verified by the seller. These badges can be earned in a wide variety of environments, an increasing number of which are online contribution.
Digital credentials are digital forms of any type of physical credential of a user. These range from user’s winner of a contest, contributior, verified seller etc. Digital credentials are simply digital versions of these traditionally paper credentials, that shows proof of some kind of qualification, completion, clearance, or competence. On a practical level, these digital credentials should be verifiable just as their paper counterparts. All should contain the individual’s name, what the credential is for, who issued it, and if necessary, when it expires.
Badges are still very much in their early stages of growth, and as a result are much more ambiguous in their application. Whereas test-based digital credentials and digital certificates are are designed to look similar to their physical counterparts, digital badges have a more unique look.
How do they work?
How badges work generally depends on who is issuing them. Spenowr has created an Open Badge Infrastructure specification to help guide artists.
Spenowr's model badge essentially states that artists must fulfill the requirements of the badge by doing certain activities such as verifying seller profiles to sell products, winning a certificate, or verifying their profile.
Spenowr's badges are now a static image but in the future, they should be web-based, and clickable.
When you've completed a certain number of tasks, a Spenowr may award you a form of digital proof that you've done the work.
