Can I earn a badge for completing eLearning such as an SPVC or WBT?

LearnQuest is not able to award badges for completion of SPVCs or WBTs as we are not able to view or verify SPVC or WBT completion details. IBM does offer badges directly for some self-paced learning activities after successfully passing a quiz on their site. To see a complete list of all badges that can be earned via a quiz and to search for the topic you are specializing in, visit the IBM Skills Gateway Badging pages.

How do I earn a Badge?

Badges are earned by successfully achieving the course objectives. Evidence of completion varies among courses, but are measured by class attendance, question and answer sessions, class participation, lab assignments and/or assessments.

Was this answer helpful?

How do I prevent someone from copying and using my IBM open badge?

While open badges are simply digital image files, they are uniquely linked to data hosted on the Acclaim platform. This constant linkage to verified data makes them that much more reliable and secure than a traditional paper-based credential.

Was this answer helpful?

How does my Badge get displayed?

LearnQuest and IBM leverage Pearson Vue’s systems known as Acclaim to translate your learning outcomes or experiences into the open badges standard defined by Mozilla. This allows the badge earner to accept, manage and share earned open badges and the credentials it represents as a digital asset.

Was this answer helpful?

Looking for courses with a Badge?

All courses that are currently earning badges can be found LearnQuest Badging. Keep looking, course credentialing expands daily.

Was this answer helpful?

What if I do not want my IBM open badge to be public?

You are in total control of how and when your badge is shared. All information regarding you and your credentials can be configured within the profile you set up in the Pearson Vue Acclaim system. If you do not want your open badge or your profile to be visible to the public, you can make them private. In fact, you may simply discard the open badge email if you do not wish to participate in the badge program.

What is a Badge?

A digital ‘badge’ is an online industry-wide recognizable form of achievement. Badges indicate knowledge and skills acquired, active role in communities, contributions to the field, excellence in specific areas of technology and other individual accomplishments.

IBM and LearnQuest credentials are recognized, respected and valued globally in the IT industry. Badging easily and quickly shares verified proof of your achievement.

Was this answer helpful?

What is the process for claiming my Badge?

After successful completion of the badge requirements, LearnQuest will confirm the achievement and an email link will be sent by the accrediting organization, in this case IBM and its software partner Pearson Vue. Once you receive the email from Pearson Vue’s Acclaim System, you will be asked to create an account and claim the badge. Once you have accepted the badge, you will have the ability to easily share with social sites and send emails announcing your achievement.

Was this answer helpful?

Why earn a Badge?

Academics, professional organizations, and corporations are focused on badging and its role in talent management and recognition of achievements. Badges are secure, web-enabled credentials that contain granular, verified information employers can use to evaluate an individual’s potential.

Step number 1 for scheduling a class is to upload a location spreadsheet. A Partner needs to specify a location on the Class Schedule Spreadsheet that matches a location name listed on the Location Spreadsheet. So, for full instructions on uploading locations, please watch Portal Video ten (Demo Videos) and/or see section entitled 'Locations' in the LearnQuest Partner Portal Guide (Portal Guide).

How does a Partner upload a valid course code from the LearnQuest Course Catalog?

The Course code has to be a valid course code and the easiest way to get a list of valid course codes, is by download the Course Catalog from the Partner Portal. Our course catalog has the course code and name. If a Partner puts a course code that does not appear on the course catalog download, this course will not be a valid code. For full instructions on downloading the Course Catalog, please watch Portal Videos six and nine (Demo Videos) and/or see section one of the LearnQuest Partner Portal Guide (Portal Guide).

How does a Partner upload an Instructor Spreadsheet?

Partners are required to provide instructor information before the instructors can be used by the Class Schedule Spreadsheet which identifies the instructor by the email address linked to their instructor profile. Before putting the Instructor email address in the 'Instructor' column, the Partner needs to prepare and upload the Instructor Spreadsheet with the email address and upload it to the portal. For full instructions on uploading Instructor Skills, please watch Portal Video eleven (Demo Videos) and/or see section titled 'Load Instructor Skills' in the LearnQuest Partner Portal Guide (Portal Guide).

How does a Partners upload enrollment for a class on the LearnQuest schedule?

All Roster Spreadsheets require the first name, last name, and email address for each student. The same email address cannot be used for different students. A Partner can request LearnQuest to stop sending automatic student emails and request the Partner organization send the emails. The LearnQuest partner team at partners@learnquest.com will need to be notified with the email address where all communications will be sent. For full instructions on uploading enrollments, please watch Portal Videos three to five (Demo Videos) and/or see section three of the LearnQuest Partner Portal Guide (Portal Guide).

How does a Remarketer enroll students into one of the classes on LearnQuest's schedule?

A Remarketer that is enrolling students does not need a Vendor_Class id because the Remarketer is enrolling students into a class that is already on the LearnQuest public schedule. In these situations, the Remarketer should use the Class_ID column. This Class_ID is listed on the first column in the report of the class schedule that is downloaded from the Partner portal. This is the Class_Id that should be put into the first column of the roster spreadsheet. For full instructions on uploading enrollments please watch Portal Videos three to five (Demo Videos) and/or see section three of the LearnQuest Partner Portal Guide (Portal Guide).

Why did I find one of the Partner classes is marked as cancelled when the Partner did not upload a Class Schedule Spreadsheet and cancel the class?

A class is automatically cancelled 14 days before the start date, if there are no students enrolled. This may be fine for the partner but if the Partner does not want this rule to be applied then the Partner needs to go to the Location Spreadsheet and in the Column 'Cancellation Days' on the same line of the Location you are updating, the Partner needs to put in the number of days (for the particular location) that they want the classes, with no enrollments, to be cancelled. This number will override our class cancellation day policy. For full instructions on uploading locations, please watch Portal Video ten (Demo Videos) and/or see section entitled 'Locations' in the LearnQuest Partner Portal Guide (Portal Guide).

      1. Test your virtual classroom
      2. Note: You will automatically be launched into the test session once you click on the word “Test”

        • Mobile users – If you have not yet installed the GoToWebinar app, you will be directed to the app store to download it.

I have left the webinar and am trying to reconnect to the webinar. It is telling me that I am still connected when I try to re-join. What should I do?

Sometimes the Webinar does not recognize that you were disconnected. Since the Webinar will not allow two individuals to attend using the same email address and it believes you are still connected, you may need to enter an alternate address. You may use a fictitious e-mail address if you do not have an alternate one to enter.

For example, if you were disconnected and your e-mail address is johnsmith@learnquest.com, you may not be able to log back in utilizing the same email address.

When an error message appears saying "johnsmith@learnquest.com is already logged in", try logging in as johnsmith1@learnquest.com (even though this e-mail address does not actually exist).
