Digital Badges in Learning Design and Technology Digital badges are visual representation of a stackable skill set — a powerful micro credentialing tool for identifying and validating the rich array of people's skills, knowledge, accomplishments, and competencies. Students in this MSEd program come from diverse technological backgrounds. Some may know how to use many different types of tools, others are still adding to their expertise. MicroHE – Support Future Learning Excellence through Micro-Credentialing in Higher Education MicroHE is explicitly designed to match several of the priorities of the EU strategy on higher Education: It will encourage a greater variety of study modes as well as exploit the potential of ICTs to enable more effective and personalized learning experiences by supporting the expansion of micro-credentials, i.e. of higher education provided digitally in units of fewer than ECTSIt will help to ensure the efficient recognition of credits gained abroad through effective quality assurance, comparable and consistent use of ECTS and the Diploma Supplement, and by linking qualifications to the European Qualifications Framework, by piloting tools (such as a module supplement and a recognition clearinghouse) to allow these instruments to be used to assess, certify and recognize micro-credentials. The MicroHE project has received funding from the European Union’s Erasmus+ programme. Through these activities, the project intends to:

Microlearning – the next big thing is small! - Inspired Business Media Of the many sessions on our radar at the DevLearn Conference in Las Vegas recently, microlearning was one of the most talked about topics, filling the room each time. It seems everyone wants to know more about what it is, how it works and how it can transform their training initiatives, silver bullet style. It turns out though, according to JD Dillon (learngeek.co) who delivered a particularly engaging session, we should stop talking about microlearning as something separate from ‘learning’ – it should simply be what we are doing to fit the needs of today’s learners – i.e. creating opportunities that match how individuals want to find and consume learning. This may sound obvious, but it isn’t always uppermost in the mind of business stakeholders when specifying the build of training courses. What this means is that we need to design learning with the following in mind: Today’s learners are short on time.
