Degreed Beta

David Wiley, iterating toward openness, Sept 20, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is an interesting experiment but I can't imagine it working outside the U.S. - "Degreed pulls your Education information from Facebook and prompts you to add more detail and confirm it. Degreed then makes a best guess about the classes you would have taken and builds out a generic transcript for you. (In a future version you’ll be able to both (1) refine the generic transcript by hand or (2) upload a transcript so that trained squirrels can refine your profile for you and mark it “verified”.) You can then add other informal courses (e.g., from Udacity), Mozilla open badges, etc. to fill out your profile."
