Making Sense of Microcredentials
This session will explore the emerging landscape of microcredentials (more than a course, less than a degree) being introduced by the major MOOC platforms. We will examine the similarities and differences, major features, audience, and impact of these new credentials. In addition to exploring Class Central's research on microcredentials, we will call on experts who have studied microcredentials and industry professionals who have created and launched them.
