The NY Daily News featured the heartwarming story of teens on probation in New York City giving back to beleaguered residents of Gerritsen Beach, a Brooklyn community devastated by Hurricane Sandy. Credly is being used to acknowledge the achievements of these volunteers at relief sites and in their local communities.
Credly founder and CEO delivered a Featured Session at the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative Annual Meeting face-to-face in Denver and online. The presentation looked at how programs outside higher education—as well as some pioneering projects in the postsecondary sphere—are adopting digital credentials and badge-empowered learning.
Credly announced that it has worked with The Noun Project to integrate its thousands of globally identifiable icons into the free Credly badge-building system. “As ardent supporters of lifelong learning, we’re excited to see icons from The Noun Project’s collection integrated into the badge maker to encourage individual achievement and reward ongoing pursuits of knowledge,” stated Sofya Polyakov, co-founder and CEO of The Noun Project.
EDUCAUSE, the foremost association for information technology in higher education, is using Credly to recognize professional achievement beginning at the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) Annual Meeting.

In this podcast, Jonathan Finkelstein, CEO of Credly, speaks to Dr. Martha J. Kanter, Under Secretary of Education at the U.S. Department of Education. The discussion turned towards digital badges and the role they can play in education and workforce development.
