Our peer review-based vetting system enables you to earn credentials on Gigaverse for free by:
- Accomplishing tasks independently
- Getting endorsed by fellow Gigaverse members for your skills, proficiency, and conduct
- Endorsing other Gigaverse members when you are willing to vouch for their skills, proficiency, and conduct
Accomplishments include automatic achievements, such as course completion, and submission-based achievements, such as profile completion (which you confirm by submitting the URL of your completed Gigaverse profile for admins to review).
Endorsements require nominations regarding specific skill sets, grammar proficiency, and adherence to our site’s standards for ethical conduct, copyright, sourcing, citation, and verification. For an endorsement to be applied to a member’s account, it must be approved by a Gigaverse admin (who verifies that the endorsement is legitimate). Admins will only accept nominations for endorsement from members who have completed their Gigaverse profiles, submitted them for review, and had them approved.
Each set of credentials requires a different mix of accomplishments and endorsements. To review the various requirements, peruse our credentials’ official pages and checklists.
