“People are increasingly learning informally--on the go. Everyone knows this. But what is new is the ability to leverage all of those moments of learning into something greater. To turn that into professional credit. To leverage it to learn new skills. To level up. Degreed’s mission is to make all learning matter,” explains Co-founder & CEO, David Blake. “The Degreed app is an extension of that mission--to help make all of that mobile learning matter--in a big way, in your career and professionally with your employer.”
The Degreed native app bridges the gap between people learning during their free time (usually on their phones) to standardizing and quantifying this knowledge to fuel their careers. It’s important to recognize that our education does not end when we graduate formal schooling. The definition of true “education” is blurring – people no longer solely attend a university to garner skills in concepts like code, graphic design, and even politics.
People learn from outside sources; experiential conferences, in classes, and during free time. Degreed’s mission is to streamline all types of learning create a lifelong learning profile that will help individuals and companies make smarter decisions previously based solely formal education level and accomplishments.
