At Legacy, we understand that you have spent countless hours investing in your professional skills. We understand that you continue to build your skills in order to provide the best service possible to your clients. Because of this, we have created a digital badging program to help you display your professional achievements to the world.

What is Digital Badging?

We are committed to providing you with the necessary tools to achieve your professional goals. We also understand that communicating your credentials in an ever-expanding online marketplace can be challenging—that is why we have partnered with Acclaim, a product of Credly, to provide you with a digital version of your credentials. Digital badges are graphics that can be attached to your email signature and displayed on social media platforms such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. This digital image contains verified metadata that describes your qualifications and the process required to earn them.

ACCLAIM FAQ’s

What is an open badge?

Open badges are web-enabled versions of a credential, certification or learning outcome which can be verified in real-time, online.

How does my certification get displayed as a badge?

We have partnered with Acclaim to translate the learning outcomes you’ve demonstrated into a badge. The technology Acclaim uses is based on the Open Badge Standards maintained by IMS Global. This enables you to manage, share and verify your competencies digitally.

What are the benefits of a badge?

Representing your skills as a badge gives you a way to share your abilities online in a way that is simple, trusted and can be easily verified in real time. Badges provide employers and peers concrete evidence of what you had to do to earn your credential and what you’re now capable of. Acclaim also offers labor market insights, based on your skills. You can search and apply for job opportunities right through the Acclaim platform.

Who is Acclaim?

Acclaim is a digital badge platform that works with credible organizations to provide digital credentials to individuals, worldwide.

How will I know if I’ve earned a badge?

You will receive an email notification from Acclaim (admin@youracclaim.com) with instructions for claiming your badge and setting up your account.

What if I don’t want my badge to be public?

You can easily configure your privacy settings in Acclaim. You’re in complete control of the information about yourself that is made public.

Is there a fee to use Acclaim?

No. This is a service we provide to you, at no cost.

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 the 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.

Where and how can I share my badge through Acclaim?

You can share your badge directly from the Acclaim platform to LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook; over email; embedded in a website or in your email signature.

Can I export badges issued through Acclaim to other badge-storing platforms?

Yes, you can download your badge from the Share Badge page. Your downloaded badge contains Open Badge Infrastructure (OBI) compliant metadata embedded into the image. This allows you to store your badge on other OBI-compliant badge sites, such as the Mozilla backpack.

Can I import badges issued from other platforms into Acclaim?

Not at this time.
