About the Transforming Distance Education Course Badges

The EdTech Center has partnered with Credly to offer digital badges at the topic, module and course level. You can see the full learning pathway on our Credly page here.

In order to claim an Achievement Badge, you’ll need to score 100% on each topic assessment and complete the form with your up-to-date contact information.

Successfully complete all topic lessons in a module to earn your Leader Badge for that module, and then complete all topics across the all four modules to earn your Distance Education Innovator Badge.

How do I claim my badge?

Upon completing both the assessment and embedded form in each topic, you’ll receive an email with instructions on how to accept your badge. This video provides an overview of how to obtain and manage your badge. If you’re having trouble accessing your badge, please visit for more information.

Once you’ve claimed your badge, we encourage you to make your badge visible to your professional networks by adding your badge to your LinkedIn page, on your website, as part of your email signature and more! Learn more about how to do that here.
