To earn credentials through our peer review-based vetting system, you must submit at least six endorsements vouching for fellow Gigaverse members’ course-specific skills, grammar proficiency, and/or adherence to Gigaverse standards. Every time one of your nominations for endorsement is accepted by a Gigaverse admin, you earn ten points (and by accumulating 60 points, you will meet the endorsement requirements to earn a set of advanced credentials).
We have made endorsements a requirement for two reasons:
- Reviewing others’ skills, grammar proficiency, and conduct with a critical eye will help you sharpen your own skills
- Given that you rely on others’ endorsements to earn credentials for free, we think it’s only fair that you return the favor
Concerned about the time and effort it will take to endorse other people? Feel free to specialize in a single type of endorsement.
Do you know our standards really well? Review fellow members and endorse them when it is clear they adhere to these codes of conduct. Are you a grammar pro? Review your fellow community members’ grammar proficiency. Did you just finish our Freelance Writing course? Review fellow members’ work and test their skills to endorse their freelance writing skills.
Once you become familiar with the review process for a particular behavior, proficiency, or skill, you will be able to find, review, and nominate fellow members quite efficiently.
