These smaller credentials recognize students’ specific skills or achievements in online and on-campus undergraduate courses.  Besides their transcript, graduates of Western Michigan University’s Haworth College of Business can show potential employers that they’ve earned a digital badge for Event Leadership or Mobile – as in mobile programming. At Santa Barbara City College, students can take free courses through the School of Extended Learning – usually eight to 16 hours – to earn badges in Blogging for Business or Workplace Essentials, such as business writing and time management. The badges can be shared on social media, LinkedIn profiles and personal websites.
