Digital credentials will change the way we think about and represent learning, skills, and achievement. Institutions like UMUC and UWEX are collaborating to develop standards to facilitate the exchange of competency-based data and extended transcripts. Presenters will detail their programs, review lessons learned, share results, and discuss the opportunities for learners to digitally market 21st-century skills. Presenters will also introduce ideas for connecting employers and students.
