UMassOnline joins the ranks of alternative credentialers - Tara García Mathewson, Education Dive

The University of Massachusetts’ online arm, UMassOnline, has announced a non-credit badge program in project risk management, bringing the university in line with an alternative credentialing trend sweeping the higher ed marketplace. According to eCampus News, the self-paced program is made up of three modules that teach risk management planning, risk identification, qualitative and quantitative risk analysis, risk response planning, and risk control. Students can progress as quickly as possible through the modules or take up to a year from the time of enrollment, and, once they pass the assessments, they receive a digital badge for display on resumes and social media profiles. http://www.educationdive.com/news/umassonline-joins-the-ranks-of-alternative-credentialers/416742/
