Online@JSU Badges

A Badge is a digital icon which represents completion of training, development, and other learning opportunities and is used to document and share achievements. Recipients of a Badge may share their accomplishments on social media sites (LinkedIn, Facebook, etc.) as well as manage badges received over time. Badges are an excellent supplement for traditional credentials such as degrees and certificates and often offer direct links to artifacts of learning.

Online@JSU uses the system Credly to manage and issue badges. Badge recipients also use the Credly system to receive, share, and preserve badges in the future. For more information on Credly, see the following links and information.


Credly is a system for issuing and managing badges for bot the issuers and the recipients. From within the system, users may send an email to badge recipients and share earned badges to social media. When a badge is shared, links back to a description of the badge requirements as well as artifacts to an individuals work are included. For an example, see the Multimedia Badge.
