All micro-credentials earned on BloomBoard are “Open Badges”. This means your skills and achievements can be verified through information that is coded into the badge image file. Because the system for coding the information is based on an open standard, earners can combine multiple badges from different issuers (i.e. not just BloomBoard) to tell a complete story of their achievements — both online and offline. Badges earned can be displayed anywhere on the web or shared for employment, education, or lifelong learning.
