Rise points can be ‘themed’ around specific subject areas. This allows us to micro-accredit using digital badges; for example, offering a ‘sustainability’ badge to a student who earns a particular number of points for activities linked to sustainability.
Badges can be generic (i.e. awarded after a specific threshold) like our Design Thinking badge below.
Badges can also be tiered, with Bronze, Silver and Gold badges awarded successively for increased and sustained engagement with a theme:
These badges can be displayed on LinkedIn or social media to provide evidence of expertise in an area. More detail can be found in this article: Rise Badges.
