Digital kidnappers

Digital innovations today are coming out at lightning speeds and cyberspace is fast becoming to be a rich goldmine for digital kidnappers.

The promise of micro-credentials

Micro-credentials have been creating a buzz lately as a potential path to helping solve the age-old job – skills mismatch issue. Europe recently adopted the Council Recommendation on a European Approach to Micro-credentials for Lifelong Learning and Employability. OECD, meanwhile, launched a Micro-credential Implementation Project last year to help member countries develop national initiatives. Similarly, in the Asia-Pacific region, UNESCO is doing research on national use cases to assist policymakers to become aware of approaches in the region.
