Credly Digital Badge
The College of Continuing and Professional Studies (CCAPS) is offering digital badges to participants of the 2017 Minnesota eLearning Summit. A digital badge serves as verification for employers and peers that you have participated in this professional development conference.
As a Credly Verified Issuer, CCAPS will publicly issue all earned badges via Credly. After the conference, you will receive an email
notification of your achievement. If you don’t have a Credly account, you will be prompted to create one after to accept and share or post your digital badge.
How to collect your digital badge
A few days after the conference, you will receive an email with a link to collect your digital badge. If you no longer have access to the email, contact our Information Center at 612-624-4000. An information center representative will verify the completion of your conference and send you a new email to collect your badge.
Your Credly account URL
Every Credly member has their own unique public profile on Credly.com. You can customize the web address people use to visit your profile.
Multiple email accounts within your Credly account
If you are issued a digital badge on an email account that is different than the email you used to set up your Credly account, you will need to add the new email to your Credly account, then claim your badge. To add the new email, you will log into your Credly account, click on Account Settings, Edit Email, then Add New Email.
How to share your digital badge on Social Networks
There are many options for sharing your digital badge: see the Credly Knowledge Base webpage for various tutorials.
Posting and sharing your digital badge on LinkedIn
Credly has enabled a copy-and-paste feature to make it easy for you to manually add your verified achievements, badges, or certifications to your LinkedIn Profile and to share them with your LinkedIn network.
