We are using Credly for digital badging, and started using it in June 2021. As the Education Manager I am the primary user and administrator of the program. We are using it to issue educational program badges as well as badges for our membership and their involvement in various committees, on our Board of Directors and other membership related areas.
- Easy to design badges
- Great customer support
- Lots of analytics available
- If badges are linked or dependent on each other for earners, all need to be ready to launch at the same time.
- Creating the metadata, as a new administrator of digital badging, is a little cumbersome. Takes a while to understand.
- The upload process for issuing bulk badges is not difficult, but involves several steps that all need to be followed very specifically with no errors.
This is our first experience with a digital badging system, so as of now it seems to meet our overall needs. Credly is very widely known and utilized by many companies, so they are well established in the arena. Real time training is a plus, as is a dedicated Credly success manager.
