What is Credly?
TypeWell uses Credly to recognize the achievements of transcribers and other disability service professionals who participate in TypeWell's professional development activities. A digital "badge" can be used to display your skills and achievements on professional social networking sites like LinkedIn or Facebook.
"Thousands of organizations, including the New York City Department of Education, Adobe, SUNY, University of Central Florida, Dallas Museum of Art, MoMA, EDUCAUSE, Instructure, Training Magazine, Yale University, Harvard, the YMCA of Greater New York, Smithsonian, and NMC, use Credly to make achievements visible." —About Credly
