Better 21C Credentials: Evaluating the promise, perils and disruptive potential of digital credentials
This paper analyses 19 case studies . . and compares a credit-eligible MOOC credential with a similar university course: overall the MOOC does not, as yet, provide a ‘better’ 21C credential. However, it is way too early to dismiss 21C credentials attained through MOOCs and similar channels. .. In a time when higher education credentials are highly sought after, but very expensive, it is difficult to see how 21C credentials, done well, will not eventually have a disruptive influence on higher education as we now know it.
