Harper College faced a challenge: it needed to strengthen the credibility of its Continuing Education program with employers. The solution? Digital credentials.
Continuing education is a consistent theme in upskilling and training the workforce, and Harper College’s Continuing Education department serves students with short-term career training and personal enrichment programs. To give the program’s credibility a boost--and help distinguish itself from the college’s academic program counterparts--it turned to digital credentials.
This case study on Harper College’s Continuing Education program covers a range of topics, including how Harper College:
- Uses digital credentials to strengthen program credibility
- Worked with the Credly team to effectively use metadata and create the badge design for its digital credentials
- Creates opportunities for its learners by mapping digital credentials to labor market insights on Credly’s Acclaim platform.
