Digital Badges conform to the Open Badges standard (openbadges.org ), which is already being used by literally thousands of companies. Open Badges can be embedded in your professional profile (eg: LinkedIn, Xing, and other social media), resumes, business cards or other digital locations. The image of the badge contains metadata that provides more information about the badge and can be verified independently. For example, an employer can click on a badge to get more information about what it means and to check when and how the person showing it got it. Optionally, you can order printed certificates to be mailed to you if you need them in physical form.
