What is a microcredential?

It's not a full degree, but it is learning in smaller units.

Badges are short courses that center around specific competencies and award .5+ credit hours, but also a digital badge that you can electronically post to your social media profile or online resume.
Certificates are collections of 12+ hours of courses in a core area and upon completion appear on a transcript as “certificate.”
