Digital skills, badges, and microcredentials: Reflections on the basis of a use case
Carlos Delgado Kloos, Carlos Alario-Hoyos

Digital microcredentials are key for the future of education. Governments and the private sector are offering multiple frameworks and solutions. At UC3M we are involved in multiple initiatives. However, if a university wants to offer them today it is not easy to bet for the right decision for the future. We offer a practical use case of a program of digital skills that is taken as a basis for piloting and reflection.
