Proof of skill attainment through alternative credentialing has gone mainstream. Microcredentialing and digital badging have become credible ways to codify achievements of many kinds: nanodegrees, traditional learning programs, micromasters, etc. This session will define and describe the emergence of badging, microcredentialing, and nanodegrees, along with the role that technology plays in enabling these models and the impact they are having on higher education.
