The pros and cons of micro-credentials

Pros

  • Learners can use micro-credentials to “stack” new modules and skills on top of previous education and training.
  • They are more affordable and flexible than traditional higher education courses.

Cons

  • A potential obstacle is ensuring governments recognize these digital badges as steps on a learning path that might lead to the equivalent of a degree.
