Organizations like the YMCA of Greater New York, the New York City Department of Education, EDUCAUSE, the Dallas Museum of Art, and the Smithsonian are leveraging Credly badge technology and services to deploy seriously engaging online, mobile and in-person experiences.
Check out these examples, and contact us about how the Credly team can help you:
YMCA of Greater NY:
Childhood obesity is a huge concern, and the YMCA of Greater New York is doing its part to help address the issue. Inspired by the White House Let’s Move initiative, the Credly team has worked with the YMCA of Greater NY to design and build a mobile app that empowers teens to explore and record physical activities, build enduring fitness routines, and earn rewards that deepen their excitement and drive to keep moving. The Credly Open Credit API acts as the brains behind the sharing out of badges from the app to social networks and beyond. Here's a short video about the project and its impact:
Dallas Museum of Art:
The DMA has launched a groundbreaking program called DMA Friends that makes the museum free to everyone, and deepens its relationship with visitors and the community. The Credly team has designed a badge-empowered engagement system available on iPad kiosks, SMS, and the web that offers visitors progressive levels of rewards and benefits as they engage with museum resources, events and the world at large. The Credly Open Credit API is at the heart of the system's automated badge sharing, sending credit received while interacting with the museum to social networks and visitors' Credly profile, according to each visitors' preferences. Credly also developed the backbone of the engagement management system using BadgeOS, a robust, Credly-enabled open source platform for engaging audiences and learners. Learn more about DMA Friends.
The world's largest museum and research complex is using Credly to give credit to learners of all ages who engage deeply with Smithsonian resources, online events and programs. The initiative includes the use of the Credly Open Credit API in physical settings, like the new Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History's Education Center, where Credly is powering achievement tracking and recognition behind every museum visitor's interactions with new education kiosks.
Using Credly, members of over 1,800 colleges and universities are eligible to earn credit for professional development, leadership and contributions to the community. Credly is working closely with EDUCAUSE to give credit where it’s due in the foremost community of IT leaders and professionals, and to model an alternate form of credentialing which has potential to transform how student achievement is recognized.
