Ten Ontario post-secondary institutions to participate in the ARUCC MyCreds™ Virtual Skills Passport pilot project for micro-credentials

29 August, 2022

Brock University

Brock University has recently implemented MyCreds™ for undergraduate level programs for transcript documentation. This project will expand Brock’s use of MyCreds™ for micro-credentials, providing consistency and expansion of how the university acknowledges completion of micro-credentials and badges through its expanding Professional and Continuing Studies unit.

Centennial College

Centennial College, a MyCreds™ early adopter, will focus this pilot project on the micro-credential that was created in collaboration with the Canadian Fluid Power Association (CFPA) to improve students’ marketability or the expansion of their career paths in this industry.

Conestoga College

Conestoga College implemented MyCreds™ in the summer of 2021 and is issuing digital transcripts with great success. Conestoga will further leverage this innovative technology by expanding the use of the MyCreds™ platform to include badges and micro-credentials.

Durham College

Durham College is new to MyCreds™ and will use this pilot to onboard digital micro-credentials. This platform will allow students to download their micro-credentials and display their skills in a secure digital wallet and share their achievements with partner companies.

Fleming College

Fleming College is currently in the process of developing and launching eight micro-credentials in Virtual Reality and five in Digital Marketing, through the Virtual Learning Strategy project. In addition, Fleming is developing 26 micro-credentials in Sustainable Community Food Production and 20 in Urban Forestry. The Service System Manager is launching an Employment Counselling micro-credential in September 2022. Digital badging has been identified as the industry standard, and preferred method of credentialing for this project, which Fleming will be advancing through this initiative.

Humber College

Humber College is publishing its micro-credentials created in the Modern Campus Destiny One system out to the MyCreds™ platform. Humber is contributing to the Ontario micro-credential data convention and aims to deliver a framework that will be used as a reference for upcoming MyCreds™ implementations, in addition to badges.

Niagara College

Niagara College is newly adopting the MyCreds™ platform with this pilot project and will advance future work for the college’s digital micro-credential offerings.

Oshki-Pimache-O-Win: The Wenjack Education Institute

Oshki-Pimache-O-Win: The Wenjack Education Institute will be expanding its use of ARUCC’s MyCreds™ platform to issue digital micro-credentials and contribute to community data open standards consultations. Oshki-Wenjack will also take part in future-focused consultations to guide digitization principles and open standards for micro-credentials, and work with learners and verifiers to collect feedback.

University of Windsor

The University of Windsor has established over 120 micro-credentials over the last year and is in the early stages of building out its framework and infrastructure. The university’s regional location as a border city and significant skilled training industry positions Windsor to be a key player in informing the regional/provincial framework for badging and digital credentialing.

Western Continuing Studies

Western Continuing Studies (WCS) will use this pilot opportunity to learn more about its students’ needs, to demonstrate the industry demand for this type of learning and, internally, to begin integrating digital badges into our Micro-Credential programming. WCS will put forward four micro-credentials for this pilot which will provide opportunity for the unit to evaluate both a stackable certificate and stand-alone model.
