While traditional degrees and certificate programs recognize more robust programs of academic study, micro-credentials provide a way to recognize and document the acquisition of specific skills or competencies. Upon successful completion of a micro-credential program, learners are issued a digital badge that allows achievements to be displayed and shared. Just as diplomas serve to recognize degrees, digital badges are artifacts that offer recognition and storytelling about micro-credentials. Badges contain metadata about the program’s requirements and learning objectives, as well as links to educational artifacts. Micro-credentials at CU Boulder are administered by the Office of the Registrar
