Recent reporting by Class Central shed light on a new initiative in Europe among MOOC providers and the universities they work with to launch a program for creating portable credentials for learners. The European MOOC Consortium announced its Common Microcredential Framework in April. EMC was founded by five MOOC operators: FutureLearn, France Université Numérique (FUN), OpenupEd, Miríadax and EduOpen. The big goal of the framework is to “lay the foundations” of a new international credential that university partners could use to serve lifelong learners, according to the consortium.
