Acclaim gives organizations the ability to translate and recognise someone’s professional achievements and learning outcomes with Open Badges, which can be shared and validated online, it was announced at the Summit to Reconnect Learning in Silicon Valley yesterday [12th February].

A digital badge is simply an online representation of a skill or achievement you have earned. Open Badges take that concept one step further, allowing a learner to verify skills, achievements and learning outcomes through credible organizations and then share and display them on the web.

Open Badge-earners have complete control to display them wherever they choose on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, a blog or website to prove their credentials. This allows potential employers to quickly and easily verify the qualifications of job applicants.

Acclaim’s unique approach to applying the Mozilla Open Badge standard is to work with academic institutions and high-stakes credentialing organizations to offer diplomas, certificates and other professional credentials as Open Badges.

Mark Johnson, VP, Career and Credentialing Platforms at Pearson, said: “Acclaim was designed to expand internationally and connect individuals with jobs in emerging global economies. Acclaim Open Badges are a game-changer in the way credentials will be handled, by both employers interested in quickly verifying qualifications and learners who will now be able to prove and showcase their achievements whenever and wherever they like.”

ISACA, a global association of 110,000 information systems security, assurance, governance and risk professionals, has already implemented Acclaim Open Badges for four of its certifications.

Allan Boardman, international president of ISACA and chair of ISACA’s Credentialing and Career Management Board, said: “Open Badging is an important benefit for ISACA certification holders. It provides digital and verifiable recognition of their significant accomplishments.”
