We are really excited about the opportunity that this presents and believe that we can deliver a superior experience to our international students.
UWA is really excited to be implementing Digital Badges through My eQuals to formally recognise co-curricular and experiential learning activities of our students. My eQuals has transformed the way we certify and issue academic documents; and is extremely well-received by students, graduates and employers. UWA sees the opportunity to combine Digital Badges into our students My eQuals records, sitting alongside their official academic documents, as a natural progression of student recognition.
As the first university to go live with My eQuals in 2017, The University of Auckland is proud to be a lead supporting institution of the platform, and excited to bring Digital Badges capabilities to our students through My eQuals. Digital badging provides an opportunity for our institution to recognise the achievements and accomplishments of students in a modern way. We expect to develop and issue badges across a number of themes, including: Achievement, Professional Development, Co-curricular experiences and Milestones. The first badges to be issued by The University of Auckland, will be Achievement badges to denote completion of a micro-credential.
