Badge Count Report 2020

The use of Open Badges is growing worldwide.

See the results of the 2020 survey conducted by IMS Global Learning Consortium and Credential Engine, presenting data on the number of badges available to be earned and the count of all badges issued to recipients.

Open Badges is the world's leading format for digital badges. Open Badges is not a specific product or platform, but a type of digital badge that is verifiable, portable, and packed with information about skills and achievements.

Open Badges can be issued, earned, and managed by using a certified Open Badges platform.

Want to build new technologies to issue, display, or host Open Badges? The Open Badges standard is a free and open specification available for adoption.
