Showcase your continued learning and professional growth.

Microcredentials are a highly visible way to showcase your expertise with peers and current or prospective employers—helping you stand out in a competitive marketplace. These effective tools motivate learners to continue their professional learning and growth, demonstrate specific skills and/or competencies mastered, recognize accomplishments and experience gained, and reflect significant investment of time in service to the higher education community.

EDUCAUSE supports credential transparency, Credential Engine’s initiative to develop a robust digital ecosystem where credentials of all types and the knowledge, skills, abilities, and outcomes they represent can be easily translated across systems and organizations in support of learners.
