The UK digital badge program gives UK students and non-UK students an opportunity to take courses in a specific area, regardless of their major or current studies, with the ability to earn a digital badge.
A badge is a certification indicating demonstrated competency in a specific skill or area of expertise. On-demand, highly personalized and sharable, badges give learners a voice and a choice in what skill sets they want to pursue and, in a way, give them an opportunity to create their own education playlists.
