What is a micro-credential?

A micro-credential is a single, shareable endorsement or attestation of a learner’s achievement of specific knowledge, skills or even competencies. Micro-credentials are signified by a digital badge that can be shared on an online resume, portfolio or website. They contain embedded data about the micro-credentials, where and when they were earned and the competencies assessed to gain them.
