Leveraging a highly anticipated Coursera Blockchain Specialization, UB computer science faculty propose piloting a new process to transform Coursera-issued Verified Certificates into a UB Digital Badge, which for some learners, when coupled to their professional background, may lead to academic credit through a prior learning assessment (PLA) process to further a micro-credentialing or degree program effort.

Expanding access to career development learning for students, alumni, and adult learners across New York state, the United States, and globally, the project proposes to finalize Career Brand Management specialization and permanently deploy it on Coursera; this four-course, OPEN SUNY project was piloted in 2016 and has so far enrolled 44,500 learners from 168 countries.
The project has now been successfully deployed as a specialization on Coursera. It has considerably increased access to advanced career self-management learning, as demonstrated by many dozens of thousands enrolled learners, statewide, nationally and globally. The project significantly contributes to non-credit, continuing education of working professionals, and supports it by introducing a verifiable credential (Coursera Certificate). Also, it has resulted in developing new career training methodologies (individual skills management), resources (The Skills Manager Pro), and partnerships (as reported at Coursera Partners conference, the project is already used by businesses and organizations, including a United Nations Agency in NYC).
