Badging is a great way for Lakeshore Technical College to give proof of learning and skills gained into the hands of the students and staff. Digital credentials create opportunities for individuals to get jobs, and to advance in the workforce without bias, by validating learning in a verified, secure way.
It is a simple way to award learners with credentials beyond our degrees.
- What is a Digital Badge?
We are committed to providing you with the tools necessary to achieve your professional goals and we understand that communicating your credentials in an ever-expanding online marketplace can be challenging. That is why we expanded LTC's credential opportunities through Credly’s digital badging platform enabling learners to be recognized for skills gained while in pursuit of an LTC degree. Digital badges can be used in email signatures or digital resumes, and on social media sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. This digital image contains verified metadata that describes your qualifications and the process required to earn them.
Every badge contains verifiable data that tells the world what you did or learned, who says you did or learned it, and why it matters.
