    This is an interesting email?

    Hello from the American Council on Education,

    You are receiving this email because you have previously ordered a transcript from the ACE Registry and Transcript System for workplace training or courses. As of November 30, 2020, ACE has transitioned our transcript services to Credly’s Acclaim, a digital badging platform where you can share your accomplishments and order free digital transcripts sent directly to schools to receive credit towards a degree.

    If you are interested in maintaining your credentials in the new platform, ACE needs your permission to share records of your approved courses with Credly so that you can be issued digital badges in Acclaim. Please fill out the short survey at the link below letting us know if you would like to migrate your course records into Acclaim. Once we have your response, ACE will coordinate with each training provider to issue badges so that you can continue to access official ACE transcripts.

    Follow this link to the Survey:

    Or copy and paste the URL below into your internet browser:

    If your credentials are older or the organization that approved them is no longer active with ACE, we may not be able to secure the approvals needed to publish those courses or exams as digital badges. However, even if you know that the providers you studied with are no longer in operation, it is important to us to know if you still need access to your records so that we can offer assistance.

    Additionally, you may already have been issued badges for recent courses. If you have received an invitation to accept a badge from Acclaim, click the link inside and make an account to have immediate access to your transcripts. If all of your courses are there in your dashboard, there is no further action you need to take. We know that this process has been confusing for students, and we appreciate your patience as we work to modernize our services and provide a life-long digital credential that will always be freely accessible to you. Thank you!

    Yeah... they should automatically transfer all old ACE records to the new Acclaim platform.

    Oh hey, yeah, like i mentioned on the other board, you've got to remove the links otherwise, when people click onto it... it'll try accessing your account details.

    Very easy to use, one logs in to Acclaim and from their profile can email the transcript to a college or themselves.
    As long as colleges and universities registrars accept these emails sent from acclaim then there is no issue. Are they aware and ready?
    I will know soon as one of my sons just earned 12 ACE recommend credits by earning a google professional certificate and trying to transfer to a community college.

    WES uses Credly too, so this feels like a good move if it allows portability of your credentials and credits.

    I like the name "Credly." It sounds believable and --- friendly, perhaps. Too bad it's kind of like "bigly." That was a word I had nothing against, until you-know-who...

    Reminds me of a line from Corner Gas:

    Hank: Hey Brent, can I borrow a tenskie?

    Brent: You just call it that so it doesn't sound like real money.

    Just imagine when the kids start asking for a credly to go to the space movies!
