Big companies and private industries looks to hire specialized people according to their needs. Currently, micro-credentials are used to fulfill those needs.
Micro–credentials are a competency-based digital form of certification. They can be issued for formal and informal professional learning experiences that support educators developing skills and acquiring knowledge to improve professional practice that supports student success.
Some thoughts to reflect are: Would micro-credentials replace majors in higher education? How institutions could incorporate micro-credentials to the educational system? Would it be fare that companies or private industries create their own “education institution” to fulfill their specific needs?
