Better Badges & Certificates


Example Badge

We’ve improved the experience of your certificate & badge recipients.

It’s now easier (and more attractive) for your recipients to share their collection of credentials. If you’re issuing more than one certificate or badge to the same person, they can now easily share a glance-able page with all of their achievements.
A recipient of a credential can now set a password for return visits for easier login. Recipients of certificates and badges are still automatically logged in to the credential and don’t get prompted to create a password. They will only see the option in the dropdown from their account name. This makes re-logging in much smoother (and equally secure option) for many recipients who have found the security-code process difficult in the past.
We now indicate to certificate and badge viewers that they can ‘Verify a Credential’. We want your recipients to benefit from increased trust in their credentials.
– We’ve updated the display of the credential page to put more emphasis on the requirements and status of a credential.
Sharing is easier. We’ve reworked the actions on the credential view to ensure that the key options are easier to access.
– Certificates & Badges load much faster and have a reduced file size.
– We now support the French language. We’re always adding new languages.

WordPress Badges & Certificates


Certificates & Badges on WordPress just got a lot easier! We’re excited to release the new version of our WordPress plugin which adds:

– A shortcode to let you show badges & certificates belonging to the currently signed in user to any page or post. You can customize the display and limit the number shown.
– A widget to let you list certificates & badges belonging to the currently signed in user.

Read more about the plugin and see the documentation: https://wordpress.org/plugins/accredible-certificates/

Open Badges 2.0


We’re Open Badges 2.0 compliant!

All the badges you create and deliver via Accredible are compatible with platforms that are compliant with the Open Badge 1.0 or Open Badges 2.0 specification.

Open Badges 2.0 greatly surpasses the previous badge specification by ensuring recipient control of credentials, demonstrating rigor of achievement, and guaranteeing that learners are able to display their badges on and share their badges from any compatible platform.

Copy Group & Default Designs


We are still improving the Accredible platform to ease your workflow:

1. You can Clone a Group to save time setting up a new badge or certificate.

2. Setting a default certificate or badge design means that you can add new Groups via Canvas, Moodle, Brightspace or your own integration and start delivering credentials with no setup.

Visit Groups to try out the clone feature and Default Group Settings to choose a default certificate and badge design for newly created Groups.

Easier Workflow: Default Group Settings


We are constantly improving the Accredible platform to ease your workflow. Today we’re excited to announce our latest feature: Default Group Settings.

Head over to Groups and click Default Group Settings to set the defaults you’d like for any new Groups that are created, including:

– Language
– Credential privacy
– Brand
– Email options and Templates
– and more!

Now, when creating a New Group, all these settings are already in place!
