EDBRIEF: Udacity partners with Accredible to track Nanodegrees

Accredible, an edtech startup that tracks learning behaviour and performance, announced a partnership with Udacity to power its new professional profiles and nanodegrees.

Launched in October last year, nanodegrees are created to offer a compact and relevant education towards high demand tech jobs.

Udacity raised a $35 million Series C in September to double down on its new certification program.

Learners who start a nanodegree will now automatically create an evidence portfolio, which is then populated with learning related data. Learners can also upload extra examples and share their portfolios with recruiters or via LinkedIn.

Accredible offers institutions different ways of integrating their certification process, from WordPress and Moodle plugins over spreadsheet uploads to an API. Students can also upload pdf versions of older certificates which are then added by Accredible to their profiles.
