Better Badges & Certificates June 2018

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.

Take a look at our badge example:

WordPress Badges & Certificates June 2018

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.

Better Value Pricing February 2018

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.

Public Wallets February 2018

Recipients of certificates and badges can now showcase their learning using our public view of their profile.

We’ll be adding more functionality to this in the future so that it’s easier to collect badges, certificates and blockchain credentials.
