Important Webinar on Alternative and Digital Credentialing;
Watch and Listen to the Recording
Georgia Tech recently held a webinar entitled "Alternative, Stackable and Micro Credentials: Where are we headed?" The webinar lasted for three hours – but you can jump ahead in the recording if you can’t watch the full 3 hours. (You can click on each new speaker listed in a kind of table of contents on the webinar page). The recording is at this link:
I found the webinar to be valuable from the perspective of the eportfolio field. I think you will also. Below are emails from Dan Hickey and Malcolm Brown regarding the webinar and availability of the webinar recording.

Badges CG members:
GA Tech organized a nice webinar for National Distance Learning Week: "Alternative, Stackable and Micro Credentials: Where are we headed?" Will include talks by Kyle Bowen, Patrina Law, Denise Paster, Alan Reid, Mark Lueba, Kyle Peck, Nelson Baker, Yakut Gazik and me. I am particularly excited to be showing of some really great new interactions occuring around digital badges in Portfolium as a major step forward towards true learning recognition networks.

From Malcolm Brown, ELI:
The event that Dan mentioned in his earlier post was a terrific event; all the presenters shared valuable insights and perspectives. It provides an excellent snapshot of where things stand, and also a glimpse into the future (Kyle Peck’s presentation).
Fortunately those who could not attend can still take in the sessions. Here is a link to the recording:
Like the event itself, access to the recording is free of charge.
