Digital Badging


NSO's Digital Badging Programme

By Mr. Gheorghe Roman
Standards, Evaluation and Training Department

The NATO School Oberammergau (NSO) is constantly looking for new tools and methods in training and education, student skills recognition, competencies and achievements. Since the start of the digital badge programme in summer 2017, the NSO has issued 1139 badges to students attending 27 different courses. Currently 55% of all NSO students sign up for a digital badge upon the successful completion of their course. By the end of 2018, the NSO plans to make digital badges available for 85 courses.

NSO course graduates can claim and display their digital badge on any online platform. The NSO’s digital badges are also portable and contain metadata which provides information about the issuing organization, the recipient, and evidence that substantiates the award of the badge.
