AEA open badge FAQs
Share |

What is an open badge?
An open badge is a digital representation of an outcome or an achievement. Open badges refer specifically to badges that adhere to an open standard being led by the Mozilla Foundation for recognizing and validating learning. They are secure web-enabled credentials that contain granular, verified information employers can use to evaluate an individual's potential.

How do I get an AEA open badge?
AEA open badges will be issued for certifications, events and other professional accomplishments that we recognise. The organizer of those events or activities will advise that they are able to offer AEA open badges.  You can then ask them to issue you with a badge that will be reported to the AEA to issue.

What is the process for claiming my AEA open badge?
AEA will then have its service provider issue the badge and provide you with a link where the badge can be claimed. Upon clicking the link in the email sent by Acclaim, you will be taken to the Acclaim web site.
If you do not already have an account, you will create an account that will allow you to claim the badge AEA has issued to you. Once you have accepted the badge, you will have the ability to easily share with social sites and send emails announcing your achievement.

How does my credential get displayed as an AEA open badge?
AEA has partnered with Pearson VUE to leverage their initiative known as Acclaim to translate your learning outcomes or experiences into the open badges standard defined by Mozilla. This allows the badge earner (you) to accept, manage and share your AEA open badge and the credentials it represents as a digital asset.

What is Acclaim?
Acclaim is an independent initiative backed by Pearson VUE. Its focal point is an enterprise-class badging platform built in compliance with Mozilla’s open badges standards to support the specialized needs of credential issuers, employers, and professionals. The Acclaim web platform provides a secure means of storage, transport and credential publishing that adds a layer of protection against those who may falsely claim high-stakes credentials.

What is the relationship between AEA and Acclaim?
AEA has entered into a vendor relationship with Pearson VUE to implement a program for web-enabled credentials displayed as open badges. Acclaim is the web site from which you claim (accept), store and transmit open badges related to your credentials and where those to whom you send your credentials verify the metadata contained within.

What if I do not want my AEA open badge to be public?
You are in total control of how and when your AEA open badge is shared. All information regarding you and your credentials can be configured within the profile you set up in the Acclaim system. If you do not want your AEA open badge or your profile to be visible to the public, you can make them private. In fact, you may simply discard the badge email if you do not wish to participate in the AEA open badge program.

Is there a cost associated with claiming and displaying my AEA open badge?
Accepting, storing, managing and sharing AEA open badges is free for badge earners.

How do I prevent someone from copying and using my AEA open badge?
While badges are simply digital image files, they are uniquely linked to data hosted on the Acclaim platform. This constant linkage to verified data makes them that much more reliable and secure than a traditional paper-based credential.
