I received an alert from Adam Brimo yesterday about Accredible. On the Accredible Blog, the founders note: Here at Accredible, we’ve been working hard to improve the way that credentials and certificates are generated across MOOCs, university courses also as wider learning by using peer-review and reputational networks to determine and maintain quality.

I have not written many posts in the past two months. I have been a peripheral participant in many conversations and have admired from afar the insights and wisdom being shared. This week a post from Stephen Downes was a catalyst for this post about c-ness. Stephen linked to Dan Pontefract’s post The Organisation as Read More
