    A new ecology of credentials has emerged on the back of MOOCs and is bolstered by stackability. This crucial innovation creates new catalysts for access, engagement, and personalization at scale and provides great hope for a future of inclusive and empowered problem solving.

    The shift from degrees to skills continues to change who is hired and how people are hired, but it may not impact all sectors.

    "In all cases, a serious problem is that e-learning often falls outside the scope of quality assurance in higher education, making it difficult to establish the quality of the MOOC, which is a key part of a credential evaluation."

    Thanks for reading.
