How can we help you learn?

Digital Badges

In addition to your paper-based qualification, you will be awarded a digital badge for successfully completing your studies via eCampus NZ. 

What is a digital badge? 

Digital badges are electronic versions of paper certificates. They are becoming a popular way to showcase skills and achievements online. 

You can attach your badge to your social media profiles (like LinkedIn), email signature, resume, website, and more. Potential employers, colleagues, friends, and whānau can see an overview of what you have learned simply by clicking on the badge.


Sample digital badge



Celebrate your learning milestone…

……on LinkedIn, social media, email, your resume, and more.



Attract future employers…

……or impress your current one by showcasing your verified skills and achievements online.



Easier to share than paper certificates…

…and include lots more information about what you’ve actually learned.

How to claim and share your badge

We have partnered with Credly to translate the learning outcomes you’ve demonstrated into a badge, issued and managed through the company’s Acclaim Platform.

When you complete your qualification and your results have been finalised, you will be sent an email from Credly’s Acclaim platform ([email protected]) with instructions for claiming your badge and setting up your account when your results have been finalised. When you receive it, simply follow the instructions in the email to claim and share your badge.


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 hosted on Credly’s Acclaim Platform. 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.

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

I have a question about the Acclaim Platform. Where can I find more support?
