The availability of online courses, combined with the augmented supply of learning resources, both online and offline, due to unbundling of education services, allows a further personalization of education. Students are able to combine education services from different education providers to form a learning path tailored to their personal preferences, interests and talents.
Such personalization gives rise to alternative methods of assessment for learning, beyond the traditional degree, with students maintaining a portfolio of credentials spread across skills. This in turn sees new services evolving that make clear connections between skills, courses, and jobs for students and employers. For example, Degreed, assigns scores to the full range of educational opportunities available, from MOOCs and immersives to college degrees and corporate training.
