Not immediately. We are preparing to issue ODEM certificates to students who complete academic programs on the ODEM Platform. In the future we hope that our certificates will be recognized by universities and organizations such as the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System that oversees the transferability of course credits.
We are also working with companies to establish standards for the earning of credits on the Platform. For instance, we expect that companies will use the Platform as a tool for training existing and prospective employees in specific topic areas.
For example, if BMW is having difficulty finding qualified engineers to design driverless cars, our ODEM educators will work with the company to develop program curriculum to certify the engineers. Once BMW approves the program it will be offered on the marketplace, students will take the course, and upon successful completion, the student will earn a certificate and the possibility of employment with BMW.
