Exploring Digital Badging? 

If you are exploring creating one or more digital badges, Learning Engineering is here to help. Please reach out to Sarah Korpi with questions and/or to schedule a meeting to discuss digital badging and how it might meet your learners’ needs.

Digital Badge Policy: 

See UW-Madison’s digital badge policy for more information.


Tier 1


$500 one-time fee for each new badge

$3 per badge award (first 100/year free)

Note: If the total client bill for Tier 1 activity reaches $4,000/year, then the client will be moved to Tier 2.

Tier 2 (all customers not in Tier 1)

$4,000/year (flat fee for unlimited new badges plus up to 1,500 badge awards/year)

Tier 3 (all customers exceeding Tier 2)

Contact Sarah Korpi to discuss terms of an MOU

Note: to encourage schools/colleges/divisions (S/C/D) to pilot digital badges, there is no cost to campus S/C/D with only 1 badge each fiscal year.

Invoices will be sent to each issuer toward the end of the current fiscal year. It is our goal to keep digital badging as affordable and fiscally sustainable as possible, and we will review this model periodically to ensure that we are meeting this goal. 

Please reach out with any questions you have regarding the financial model.
