Online educational badges a new form of credential.

Will online badges replace diplomas one day? Here is an article on the subject. Right now students have to go to college to earn diplomas, the tickets they need for success in the work place. Studies show that many of these students learn little, at least in the humanities, and of course the cost of universities is enormous, whether paid for by the student or someone else. Could it be that in the future people can learn wherever they want, including on the Internet,?? and still get a form of recognition that will be recognized in society? These are just the early days in the dismantling of an archaic education system. What do you think?
