Institutional badging emerges as new resume booster - Jarrett Carter, Education Dive

Illinois State University's badging program allows students to more creatively showcase volunteerism, technical training and skill development to potential employers and graduate schools. Officials use a third-party vendor, Credly, to administer the badges from criteria established by academic executives. The Lumina Foundation provided $2.5 million in seed funding to the badging company, a sign of support for the growing credentialing industry and its value to employers. http://www.educationdive.com/news/institutional-badging-emerges-as-new-resume-booster/424192/
