As regular readers would know, P2PU was an early and active developer of a badges platform, fostering an ecosystem for micro-credentialling that remains in use to this day. Finding fast and flexible ways to report mastery of skills that matter remains a challenging problem. 
We are always chuffed, then, to see learners finding new ways of reporting their achievements – for example as educational milestones in their Linkedin profiles
This is a great example of how online communities find new ways to report competencies. Flexible frameworks, portfolios of achievement, peer-endorsements…there are so many valid alternatives to the traditional college transcript.
Have you seen any interesting new approaches to credentialing online? Join the conversation on our forums, or see more of our musings on badges and on assessment generally.
