Report Identifies Barriers to Adopting Alternative Credentials - Rhea Kelly, Campus Technology

To help make alternative credentials a more viable option for adult learners, Eduventures recommends that institutions create a strategic framework by focusing on three areas: Define your alternative credentialing options, whether they are certificates, badges, formal statements of accomplishment, or endorsements of some kind. Determine the aim of these credentials. Are they to validate mastery of a particular skill? Do they really only serve as a more structured pathway to degree attainment? Or are they simply to demonstrate commitment to lifelong learning? Articulate ways which alternative credentials can augment traditional degrees or create a viable substitute to degree attainment. http://campustechnology.com/articles/2015/08/27/report-identifies-barriers-to-adopting-alternative-credentials.aspx
