Ryan Craig, author of “College Disrupted: The Great Unbundling of Higher Education,” expects traditional degree programs won’t survive in the long-term at all but the most elite institutions. Campus Technology reports the evidence that the higher education market is getting closer to Craig’s prediction includes the rise of coding bootcamps, nanodegrees, and companies’ removal of academic qualifications from their job criteria. Craig expects LinkedIn will become central to a competency marketplace of sorts, where employers can verify skills of prospective employees and adults can tailor their education plans to their career needs.
