Case Study: Harper College Continuing Education

Harper College faced a challenge: it needed to strengthen the credibility of its Continuing Education program with employers. The solution? Digital credentials. 

Continuing education is a consistent theme in upskilling and training the workforce, and Harper College’s Continuing Education department serves students with short-term career training and personal enrichment programs. To give the program’s credibility a boost--and help distinguish itself from the college’s academic program counterparts--it turned to digital credentials. 

This case study on Harper College’s Continuing Education program covers a range of topics,  including how Harper College: 

  • Uses digital credentials to strengthen program credibility 
  • Worked with the Credly team to effectively use metadata and create the badge design for its digital credentials
  • Creates opportunities for its learners by mapping digital credentials to labor market insights on Credly’s Acclaim platform.
