As more and more individuals claim their badges through Acclaim, a common question we’re asked is, “What do I do with it, now?”
Given the newness of Open Badges that’s a fair question, and one you can think of like this:
What do you do with the paper certificate issued after earning a credential?
And you always intend to keep that profile of yours updated on LinkedIn. But sometimes, you just don’t quite get there. That’s the beauty of sharing your badge through Acclaim.
“LinkedIn recently introduced the Add to Profile pilot service that allows members to add certification information from trusted partners directly to the LinkedIn profile. This is a very valuable service to LinkedIn members since a profile with professional certifications receives twice the views as those without.” - Mike Kim, leader of Global Business Development, LinkedIn
When you share your badge on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook, you’re expanding the reach of your credential in a way that a paper counterpart simply can’t. And sharing your skills, especially over a professional platform like LinkedIn, can turn into great opportunities thanks to the power of networking.
