Micro-credentials: Access Digital Badge


After successfully completing a micro-credential learning experience on Michigan Virtual’s Professional Learning Portal, a digital badge will be awarded to you automatically via Badgr. Please see the instructions below to learn how to access and share your badge.


  1. Upon successful completion of a micro-credential learning experience you’ll receive an email from [email protected] congratulating you for earning a badge.
  2. This email indicates whether Badgr has connected your badge with your account.
    • If the colored button reads Go to Account, select this button and use your account information to sign in.
