“For example, while a student’s overall grade and ranking in a course is important, it may be interesting to potential employers to be able to view that student’s code and final presentation and see what types of engagement they had with a community, as well as impressions from mentors or instructors. With Accredible, students can also supplement the certificate with portfolios pieces, personal notes, etc.”
“Perhaps there will be a time in the not so distant future when online courses will reach their true potential, providing access to high quality education and the dream of economic mobility for anyone around the world.”
The quotes are what they say. Could it be hype? Anyway, it’s an interesting development, i think. We’ll see.
