By issuing digital certificates, we want to make Dutch education more flexible and give student mobility a boost. This is why SURF offers a trusted and secure platform which Dutch education institutions can use to issue digital certificates to their students – in the form of edubadges.
This roadmap will take you through the preparations you will need to make before you can issue edubadges.
Access to the edubadges platform
In this roadmap, we assume that your institution is already affiliated with the edubadges platform and that you can access it. If this is not the case, or if you don’t know whether your institution is already affiliated, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If your institution already has access, we will tell you who the edubadges institutional admin at your institution is. You can then contact this person with your questions about setting up and structuring the edubadges platform. If your institution does not yet have access to the platform, we will arrange this for you.
'Getting started with edubadges' learning module
The 'Getting started with edubadges' learning module is due to launch in November 2020. In the course, we will run through this roadmap with a select number of participants. During the course, you will develop your edubadges together with participants from other educational institutions and prepare the edubadges platform for your application. The participants will help each other, but will also receive coaching from the edubadges team.
