Micro-credentials vs. Badges

Community Contributor

Hi all,

There's been a lot discussion lately around the workplace about the value of micro-credentials. To me, a micro-credential seems to be a new buzz word for digital badges. They sound like almost the exact same thing in each article I read.

Has the industry adopted this new term over badges because it sounds more officialor is there truly an important difference between the two that I'm just not getting?

BTW... I've started using Badgr with some success lately, it works very well hand in hand with module requirements.

Best regards,
