Accredible - Certificates and Badges

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.

Better Value Pricing


What is the pricing change?
We’re offering more for your money by switching our per-credential pricing to be per-recipient instead. That means you can issue as many certificates and badges to each of your individual participants as you’d like without having to pay more. We charge based on the number of unique recipients you issue to.

Why are you making a pricing change?
By charging per credential we were limiting how you were able to use badges and certificates. We want to support micro-credentialing and provide more freedom in how you use our platform.

Give me an example
Sure! Let’s say you’re on our smallest plan and had an allowance of 200 credentials per year. Previously you could only issue 200 certificates and badges. Now you may issue as many certificates or badges as you like to 200 unique people per year. You may issue those 200 recipients two badges/certificates (or more) giving you 400 credentials without having to upgrade your plan.
