We are thrilled to introduce a groundbreaking feature that enhances the learning experience for our end users—Account Merge. This powerful addition enables learners to seamlessly link their VerifyEd accounts, providing a unified space for all their credentials. In this blog post, we'll delve into the significance of this feature, its practical applications, and how it aligns with our vision of creating a Lifelong Learning Ledger for every student.
Why It Matters
1. Consolidation of Credentials: Learners can now effortlessly link multiple accounts, ensuring that all issued credentials, whether from personal, work, or university email addresses, are consolidated in one central location.
2. Seamless Transition: One of the key advantages of the Account Merge feature is its ability to facilitate a smooth transition for learners who have received credentials from institutions like universities or workplaces. By linking accounts, users can retain access to their valuable certifications even after leaving an institution.
3. Lifelong Learning Ledger: This feature aligns with our overarching goal of creating a Lifelong Learning Ledger for individuals. We believe in providing a comprehensive platform that aggregates a learner's credentials across their lifetime, encompassing education, work, and various experiences.
How It Works
Account Merge is straightforward to implement and designed with user convenience in mind, learners simply:
1. Login and Navigate: Users log in to their VerifyEd account and navigate to the three-dot menu located at the top right corner.
2. Access Account Settings: Within the menu, users select 'Account' to access account settings.
3. Enter Email and Password: To link two accounts, users enter the email address and password of the secondary account they wish to link.
4. Confirmation: After entering the required details, users press "Confirm." A notification ensures users understand that credentials from the secondary account will be transferred to the primary account.
5. Permanent Link: It's crucial to note that linking accounts is a permanent action. Once confirmed, the secondary account is disabled, and all associated certificates are seamlessly transferred to the primary account.
Account Merge is more than just a feature; it's a testament to our commitment to providing a holistic and enduring learning experience. By empowering learners to bring their credentials together in one place, we're contributing to the creation of a Lifelong Learning Ledger that evolves with each individual's educational and professional journey.
At VerifyEd, we believe that learning is a lifelong pursuit, and our Account Merge feature is a step forward in making this journey seamless, accessible, and truly lifelong.
