K&R’s Signed Digital Badges
What is a K&R signed digital badge?
K&R provides qualified recipients a digital badge to reflect their training and expertise in the practice of negotiations. K&R’s digital badges are web-enabled versions of a credential or certifications which can be verified in real-time, online. Badges are earned based on successful completion of a negotiations learning pathway. Most badges require a combination of classroom learning and demonstrated professional expertise.
What are the benefits of a K&R digital badge?
Representing your skills as a badge gives you a way to share your abilities online in a way that is simple, trusted and can be easily verified in real time. Badges provide employers and peers concrete evidence of what you had to do to earn your credential and your negotiations expertise. Credly’s Acclaim Platform also offers labor market insights, based on your negotiation’s skills.
How does my K&R certification get displayed as a badge?
K&R Negotiations has partnered with Credly to translate the learning outcomes you’ve demonstrated into a badge, issued and managed through the company’s Acclaim Platform. The technology Credly uses on its Acclaim Platform is based on the Open Badge Standard. This enables you to manage, share and verify your competencies in email signatures, on social media networks such as LinkedIn, and also on company or personal websites.
How will I know if I’ve earned a badge?
Once you have successfully met the requirements of a K&R digital badge, you will receive an email notification from the Acclaim Platform (firstname.lastname@example.org) with instructions for claiming your badge and setting up your account.
Will I have to create my own account on Credly to claim my badge?
What if I don’t want my badge to be public?
You can easily configure your privacy settings in the Acclaim Platform. You’re in complete control of the information about yourself that is made public.
Is there a fee to use the Acclaim Platform?
No. This is a service K&R Negotiations provides at no charge to badge recipients.
What’s to keep someone else from copying my badge and using it?
While badges are simply digital image files, they are uniquely linked to data showing that the badge is active and in good standing. This link to verified data makes them more reliable and secure than a paper-based certificate. It also eliminates the possibility of anyone claiming your credential and your associated identity.
Where and how can I share my badge?
You can share your badge directly from the Acclaim Platform to LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook; over email; embedded in a website; or in your email signature.
What are labor market insights and how can I access them through the Acclaim Platform?
Labor market insights are pulled from live job requisitions. Based on your skills you can learn which employers are hiring, what job titles you might be qualified for, salary ranges and more. Search active job listings and even apply for them with just a few clicks through the Acclaim Platform. Access the labor market insights from your badge details page by clicking on Related Jobs, or by clicking on the skill tags assigned to your badge.
Can I export badges issued through the Acclaim Platform to other badge-storing platforms?
Yes, you can download your badge from the Share Badge page. Your downloaded badge contains Open Badge Infrastructure (OBI) compliant metadata embedded into the image. This allows you to store your badge on other OBI-compliant badge sites, such as the Mozilla backpack.
