Microcredential Proposals

What are Microcredentials

Microcredentials verify, validate, and attest that specific skills and/or compentencies have been achieved. They differ from tradtional degrees and certificates in that they are generally offered in shorter, more flexible timespans and tend to be more narrowly focused. Microcredentials can be offered online, in the classroom, or via a hybrid of both.
