Now you can share your OpenWHO achievements with your networks! We are introducing new digital badges that can easily be shared across your social platforms, as well as with colleagues and employers. Those badges are different from the Communicator, Knowledgeable and Self-Tested badges. If you want to know more about gamification on OpenWHO, please click here.

Prepare your backpack

If you’ve earned a Record of Achievement, then your digital badge comes along with it and can be found on your Certificates page. You can download the badge to your computer and upload it to a badge backpack of your choice.

Share your badge

You can easily share your badge via Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or email directly from OpenWHO using the "Share Open Badge" buttons.

Note: When you share your badge on social media or via email, the badge includes a verification link which your followers can access. Once they click this link, they will arrive at your verification page. This page will include your user information, with your name, the date of issue of the badge and your results.
