Development of Competency-Based Digital Badges/Micro Credentials System: A Pilot Project
St. Cloud State University and North Hennepin Community College

St. Cloud State University partnered with North Hennepin Community College to explore ways that digital badges can complement existing credentials, and help bridge the communication gap between the skills students have and the skills employers are looking for.
