What is a micro-credential?
A micro-credential is a self-directed online course of study, where you will work through the course material in a flexible manner (within a set overall duration, e.g. six weeks) and complete an assessment to gain a credential. There are no classes, but you will have access to an academic subject matter expert who will support you as you work on your assessment and grade your assessment at the end of the course.
