It's called micro-credentialing. We call it awesome.
Welcome to the Penn State Digital Badges system, where you can earn, share and create badges.

Learn, grow, and share
what you know!

Earning digital badges provides a way for life long learners (just like you) to demonstrate your personal mastery of a wide variety of subjects. Then, you can publicly display badges and promote your personal mastery of these topics.
