Thompson River University has announced the launch of an international credential transfer that is based on open educational resources. TRU described the program as a first of its kind offering in North America and announced that it is “among the first in the world” to recognize micro-credit transfer toward a university-level qualification. These initiatives will allow students around the world to complete micro-courses and get university credit from a respected institution. “We believe in the reduction of barriers and we believe in the right of people to have access to post-secondary education,” said associate vice-president of TRU Open Learning Don Porier. “For TRU, this not only demonstrates a commitment to our mandate around open access, but to communities worldwide and our belief in the power of co-operation and collaboration to meet very big challenges.”
