How to use Credly? Credly is an application to easily generate badges. Badges are tools that scouts are familiar with. Badges are obtained because of any achievement. Thanks to the badges acquired, badge holders can prove that they have certain competencies. Digital badges also work with this logic. Credly is an application that provides the ultimate convenience to produce digital badges. When dealing with the Credly application, it is important not to assess it as a simple designer. Credly is an app that handles badges for competency verification purposes. Now let us move on with how easy it is to produce a badge on Credly.
The process you need to do in the first stage is very simple. You can register with your email account, LinkedIn, or Facebook. In order not to allow anyone to send badges after your first registration, the Credly team verifies your profile manually. Once your profile has been verified, congratulations, you are in.
After this stage, what you will do is very simple. Credly supports sending badges with evidence that is open to verification. For this, there are a certain number of designs in their infrastructure. You must choose one of the existing draft designs. You can make changes to the draft design you selected.
The changes you can make in the design are a bit limited. You can place short emoticons on the badge. If you have one of the custom user accounts, you can add your logo. It is up to you to make certain design changes on the badge. You can start editing the details you want to send by handling them with their colors. The design process consists of one big step. The things you need to do are obvious. But do not think that you can move freely in your designs. Even with the icons you use, you only must act on certain options during color selection. After completing the first step, you will see a summary. Confirming this summary means you have completed the badge design step. After completing the design process, we switch to the submission section.
While adding recipient lists, you can make specific labeling for each recipient. It is highly beneficial that each badge has a specific description and specific labels. After all, the posted badges are proof of competence for their recipient. For this reason, it is correct to add evidence and explanations on the badges. In this way, buyers, and individuals whose badges are shown by the buyers can understand more clearly what the individual has earned with the badge.
Is There an Alternative to Credly? Sertifier!
Credly only supports badges in terms of design. You can design both certificates and badges in Sertifier.
Credly does not have a designer. With the drag-and-drop designer in Sertifier, you can design freely and achieve modern looks.
In Credly, submissions are processed manually, and recipients are added one by one. In Sertifier, you can add your lists in CSV, Excel formats or process them one by one.
Adding competencies to badges sent on Credly is not done from a library. This process does not appear to be reliable for data validation. You use a qualified and globally valid library in Sertifier.
All the features of the Sertifier are superior to Credly. For details, you can check the “How Sertifier Works” page.
Finally, we should mention pricing. You need to create a special request for Credly prices. In short, it is an unnecessarily expensive application. The pricing of the Sertifier consists of transparent and tailored packages.
