This chapter provides an overview of the present state of microlearning in higher education. It discusses the contexts in which microlearning offers potential solutions to qualifying student learning in academic settings. The chapter identifies limitations of present implementations and how they fall short of providing students with a framework that effectively communicates the value of a degree. While credit courses and traditional measures of learning are not going anywhere for the time being, microlearning has emerged as a logical addition to the learning ecosystem. Historically, students have received transcripts upon graduation from an institution. The transcripts typically consisted of abbreviated course titles and codes followed by a series of letters or numbers to denote one’s level of mastery with the subject matter they were evaluated on. Microlearning has the potential to enable students to see direct connections between the skills and knowledge that comprise a degree and their employability in the professional field.
