Curtin U grad support app

The university is expanding graduate career-support, with an informal-credentials app

It’s being trialled in a comms degree, with students able to earn digital badges for mentoring, network and other non-academic skills.

This is a home-grown product, in the developing marketplace for credentials that aren’t academic but are issued by a university. (Griffith U is active in the space, CMM April 8 2019).  Curtin U is a major presence in the MOOC market, (CMM September 6 2019) and this informal-learning recognition space has the same sort of potential.
