eNetBadges™ is a digital micro-credentialing tool to recognise learning experiences and achievement. It is an invaluable tool for improving engagement with corporate training, creating a staged approach to accreditation or providing more structure to the CPD process.
eNetBadges™ enables you to authenticate, issue and manage your organisation’s own branded Open Badges, which can be uploaded into Mozilla Backpack. The Badge’s metadata can include information about standards achieved, criteria, evaluation, and evidence of work, to help others verify and evaluate the level of achievement.
Learners can user their Backpack account to store their badges and evidence them in ePortfolios, CVs and social media. Backpack is a personal account, and not linked to any badge provider so learners can continue to add badges throughout their career, whichever organisation they work for.
