Issue in many places, manage from one place

Recognize learning wherever it happens: face to face, mobile or web. CanCred Factory has an Open API, supports LTI integration and has free plugins for many popular learning platforms.

Don’t get stuck inside your LMS! With CanCred Factory as your recognition hub, you can meet your learners across multiple platforms and contexts, maintaining control at the centre. And your badges are safe and secure, even if you decide to move from your core Learning Management System.

Free Badge Portfolio

CanCred Passport is our free companion service for badge earners to store and share them with the world.

Much more than a simple digital wallet, CanCred Passport is a recognition springboard for learners, where they can create skills portfolios that combine badges with other evidence to build and share personalized career narratives.

Free for badge recipients, with options for organisations to create Spaces or “mini Passports” to build learning communities!

Accessible via web, iOS or Android.
