“Jailbreaking the degree”

If you’re interested in micro-credentialing, capturing tacit/explicit knowledge and interests of potential team members,  and the future of tertiary education and lifelong learning – read on:

Whilst listening to a podcast called “Disrupt Yourself”, I heard of a micro-credentialing platform called “Degreed” (David Blake #77).
