Student working at a computer Beginning March 15, ASU faculty and students who use learning badges and certificates through the ASU Library’s skill-based digital learning credential service will no longer be directed to the Credly tool.

Due to low supportability issues with Credly, the ASU Library is transitioning to Badgr as its primary service for awarding digital credentials. Part of a university pilot offering, Badgr is a new tool with improved functionality and is integrated into Canvas with single sign-on accessibility. 

The ASU Library will continue to support Credly through March 15, but faculty are encouraged to begin directing their students to Badgr for an improved experience.

ASU Library’s digital credentialing program serves to bolster and demonstrate proficiency in essential university library skills, and is effective in helping students master the skills needed to avoid plagiarism, locate resources and develop a research question.
