Supporting your online journey at the University of Edinburgh
An Introduction to online learning degrees at The University of Edinburgh
Throughout the Programme you can be awarded digital (or sometimes known as open) badges for certain activities. Perhaps you already have badges from another course, or from the Survey activity in this Clinical Trials Centre. These digital badges can be held in systems like Moodle, Mozilla backpack and Pebblepad (you automatically receive a free lifelong Pebblepad ePortfolio account when you become a student with us).
You can learn more about Digital/Open Badges here, and you can can gain one for yourself here.
If you gain an open badge on the Programme, you keep it within your Moodle profile, then you can upload it to your Mozilla Backpack so that you can move it around with you to any other platform in the future. You can choose to display it within your Pebblepad ePortfolio lifelong account. The beauty of open badges are that they are portable and so move with you digitally as you move through your learning and career.
