The University of Auckland

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.
