EdCast and Credly Announce Integration to Provide Verified Credentials for Workforce Upskilling

At its 7th Annual Future of Work Summit today, EdCast, the talent experience platform leader, announced an integration with Credly, the digital credentialing leader. The integration will help joint customers leverage digital credentials and weave them seamlessly into their learning and talent development journeys.

With this integration, joint customers of EdCast and Credly will be able to:
  • Award digital credentials via Credly based on content completion on the EdCast platform
  • Import the verified digital credentials issued from Credly into their EdCast learning Skills Passport, which acts as a single source of truth about the learner’s upskilling journey
  • Gain insights about their workforce by analyzing their learners’ skills data and take a data-driven approach to provide the right opportunities to their employees
  • Allow learners to share Credly badges and certificates to a range of networks, including LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms, thereby giving greater visibility to the employee and to the business

"Digital credentials provide a foundation for organizations to build a data-driven talent management strategy, based on verified skills," said Jarin Schmidt, Chief Experience Officer of Credly. "As host of the largest, most connected digital credential network, Credly prioritizes accessibility of credential-issuing by way of numerous integrations. This new integration with EdCast further increases our ability to provide clients with a seamless experience in issuing digital badges and helps paint a more complete picture of their workforce."

“We are very excited about this partnership and the enhanced value provided to joint EdCast and Credly customers. With our Credly integration, we are able to bring a world-class digital credential network to the EdCast TXP platform. This integration will provide organizations with valuable and actionable data and insights into how recipients leverage issued badges and credentials.”
