Six universities have banded together to offer a new, non-degree credentialing service through the University Learning Store that they expect will give students value in the workplace because of industry-based verification of the skills. Campus Technology reports that students earn the microcredentials following hands-on, skills-based assessments that industry experts and employers approved as appropriate measures of competencies. Courses are organized by category — power skills, technical skills and career-advancement skills — and, if packaged together, they can form larger certifications, including one in Global Business Communication from the Georgia Institute of Technology and Business Communications from the University of Wisconsin-Extension.
