To fight diploma and certification fraud and facilitate verification, the ideal solution is to use digital credentials, integrating the issuing of micro-credentials directly to your learning management system. In this article, BCdiploma explains how.

Digital credentials and micro-credentials: guaranteeing the security of your documents
Today, the value of certificates, diplomas and training is under threat by the wide dissemination of fake and fraudulent diplomas and certificates. To prevent fraud, it is possible to secure your micro-credentials by issuing them in the form of digital credentials recorded on a blockchain, and transmitted via a unique link communicated to students by email.
Thanks to digital credentials and their integration with your learning management systems, your micro-credentials will be completely tamper-proof, therefore protecting and preserving the value of your training.
Easily shareable digital credentials
By integrating digital credentials into your learning management system, you will give your students quick and easy access to their documents, making it much easier to find jobs and put together application files.
You can also offer the sharing of certificates via social media directly from your digital education platform, so that your students have access to detailed micro-credentials that they can, for example, share on LinkedIn, integrate in their digital CVs, and pass on to recruiters.
