Certifying MOOC Learning

Today’s issue of Inside Higher Ed has an interesting article titled, The Online Pecking Order – ‘Conventional’ online universities consider strategic response to MOOCs. The article addresses the topic of certifying MOOC learning to earn competency credits. The article also provides a framework about how a MOOC for credit course might be managed.

The certifying of the subject matter competency of MOOC courses offers opportunities to for educators and institutions of higher learning and competencies to participate in the preparing of students for the work force.

Further, educators and institutions of higher learning and competencies could also work with employers to create subject matter competencies and skills specific for their organization and/or industry, similar to the approach of Udacity.
