Anyone can browse and try these activities. However, badges and certificates are only available to Notre Dame grad students, postdocs, faculty, and staff.
We use badges to represent manageable chunks of the program and to recognize your learning quickly. They also help personalize the program. Follow your interests and earn the badges you want in the order you choose.
Claiming a badge adds your name to the official list of badge earners. This lets you display the badge online with a link to a page that shows potential employers and others what you did to earn it. You can share your badge on LinkedIn, in a personal website or blog, on a professional web page, or in an ePortfolio.
Here's a video that explains the general idea of digital badges.
After completing the orientation, earn one badge from each module: Pedagogy, Tools, Media, and Project (we suggest saving the project for last). Then tidy up your eportfolio and submit the "final reflection" assignment.
Once we have verified that you did what was required, we will issue a certificate.
