How it Works for Employers

Learner-workers register for a micro-credential course, which may be offered in Clarkson University’s learning management system Moodle, in-person, or a hybrid of online and in-person.

Learners work through the micro-credential curriculum and take assessments that verify their knowledge and skills. Learners who successfully demonstrate their knowledge and skill earn recognition in the form of a micro-credential, which is an information-rich and cryptographically verifiable digital image. 

Step 1:
Identify the knowledge, skills, and experience your organization needs to meet its goals. 

Step 2:
Choose micro-credentials from our catalog or build your own. Clarkson faculty and instructional designers are available to help adapt micro-credentials to your exact needs.

Step 3:
Enroll members of your organization. Learning is available 24/7 and verified by expert-designed assessments.


Why Do Employees Value Micro-credentials?
Those who earn micro-credentials can make their knowledge, skills, and experiences visible and shareable in digital networks and environments.

What Sets Clarkson Micro-Credentials Apart?

Customize micro-credentials to fit your specific needs: Clarkson micro-credentials can be adapted to perfectly fit the unique needs and processes of your organization. Work with Clarkson faculty and/or instructional designers to co-design and adapt micro-credential curricula. 

Ensure Quality of Instruction and Assessment: Micro-credential instructional content and assessments are designed by experts in subject matter and instructional design. When someone earns a Clarkson micro-credential, you can be assured that their knowledge and skills are verified. 

Leverage Clarkson’s Instructional Technology and Learner Support Systems: Your organization has need for flexible, always available training that a learning management system can provide, but developing your own offerings require significant resources and expertise. Partnering with Clarkson can be like having your own LMS (Learning Management System), complete with learner-support systems and knowledgeable staff.
