6 institutions join University Learning Store credentialing initiative - Tara García Mathewson, Education Dive

Six universities have banded together to offer a new, non-degree credentialing service through the University Learning Store that they expect will give students value in the workplace because of industry-based verification of the skills. Campus Technology reports that students earn the microcredentials following hands-on, skills-based assessments that industry experts and employers approved as appropriate measures of competencies. Courses are organized by category — power skills, technical skills and career-advancement skills — and, if packaged together, they can form larger certifications, including one in Global Business Communication from the Georgia Institute of Technology and Business Communications from the University of Wisconsin-Extension. http://www.educationdive.com/news/6-institutions-join-university-learning-store-credentialing-initiative/416257/
