Placing Digital Badges and Micro-Credentials in Context
LaMagna, Michael
Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship, v29 n4 p206-210 2017
There is an increased focus on the use of stackable micro-credentials in education including the use of digital badges. These micro-credentials allow for students to learn specific skills or gain knowledge in focused areas of study. Stacking these micro-credentials together, students can demonstrate what they have learned. Understanding how micro-credentials and specifically digital badges are being used is important for libraries as they work to demonstrate their value as increased pressure continues to be applied from all sides.
