Credly Integration


CredlyCredly is a universal way for people to earn and showcase their achievements and badges. With Credly Integration enabled in BadgeOS, badges or achievements you create on your BadgeOS site can automatically be created on your Credly account. As select badges are earned using BadgeOS, the badge will automatically be issued via Credly to the earner so they can easily share it on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Mozilla Backpack, their web site, blog, Credly profile or other location. Credly makes badge issuing and sharing fun and easy! Learn more.

Here’s an example of a Credly user profile. Badges earned on BadgeOS are automatically sent to each user’s Credly profile, where they can be curated, managed, grouped with badges from other issuing organizations, and shared to virtually any social network.



Sharable Badges with Credly Integration

  • Badges are Mozilla Open Badge (OBI) compatible through integration of the “Open Credit” API by Credly, the free web service for issuing, earning and sharing badges.
  • Connect your Credly account to your BadgeOS site and voila! You’re using WordPress to issue “Open Badges” that can be displayed virtually anywhere.
  • Badges you create in BadgeOS automatically appear and update on Credly
  • Use Credly iOS app to issue badges you created on your WordPress site.
  • As badges are earned on WordPress, they can be automatically sent to Credly for easy sharing on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Mozilla Backpack, the earner’s own web site, blog, or Credly profile.
Credly AutoShare Settings

Earners can adjust their WordPress profile settings so earned badges are automatically sent to Credly for easy and automated sharing on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Mozilla Backpack, or their public Credly profile.

Credly Badge Embed Code

Credly lets badge recipients get embed code to show sets of badges on virtually any site.
