Modern Campus Partners with ARUCC’s MyCreds™ to Enhance System Interoperability with Destiny One
Working in partnership to create digital supports for learners and Canadian colleges and universities
TORONTO – May 26, 2022 – The Association of Registrars of the Universities and Colleges of Canada (ARUCC) and Modern Campus, the higher education industry’s leading modern learner engagement platform, today announced a partnership that will enhance interoperability between Modern Campus Destiny One—the most-used student information system for continuing and workforce education—and the ARUCC MyCreds™ | MesCertif™ National Network.
MyCreds™, powered by Digitary, is a Canadian shared service and platform that provides students and graduates access to a secure, online, password-protected learner credential wallet, with official documents issued by their institution. Modern Campus plans to build an API connector with MyCreds™, to launch in November 2022, enabling institutions on the MyCreds™ platform full interoperability for badges with their Modern Campus Destiny One local environments.
Today’s learners need flexible access to their academic credentials and documents, so that they can share evidence of their knowledge, skills, and abilities whenever—and with whomever—they want, on demand. The collaboration between MyCreds™ and Modern Campus will support learners’ unique education experiences across the full learner lifecycle.
“We’re passionate about supporting institutions in their effort to deliver modern experiences for learners—no matter where they are in their journey. Our focus on helping learners share their skills and personalized badges on any social platform is just one example of that commitment,” says Chad Rowe, vice president of product at Modern Campus, “The MyCreds™ Connector enables colleges and universities to easily issue digital credentials stored and managed externally. This will increase learner engagement, and potentially help to drive subsequent enrolments.”
Any institution's system administrator can link MyCreds™ to Modern Campus Destiny One in minutes. Once linked, institutions will be able to search or enter IDs for, and associate, any of their existing MyCreds™ badge templates to a Destiny One (Modern Campus’s purpose-built Student Information System) course section, certificate, conference, or ISPM program. With this collaboration, institutions using Destiny One will have the ability to share badge data and load MyCreds™ badges directly to their course catalogs. This feature will be available as an add-on for institutions as they onboard to the MyCreds™ platform.
“MyCreds™ is excited to partner with Modern Campus,” says Charmaine Hack, ARUCC board director of ARUCC MyCreds™, “Establishing strong ties with key student information system providers remains a core interoperability goal of MyCreds™. With this new arrangement, schools will have needed supports between their Modern Campus Destiny One local environments and MyCreds™, which will enhance efficiency and increase the access for onboarding and sharing of data for badges in a streamlined fashion. We are looking forward to the anticipated launch of the supports in late fall 2022.”
“Humber College has been using Destiny One for our learners and their digital credentials for many years. We are looking forward to the Destiny One software connector as it will allow us to automatically send our learner credentials to MyCreds™,” says Ruth Butlin, ITS director of enterprise applications, Humber College Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning, “The new functionality will improve our learner mobility as they will be able to store all their academic credentials in one digital wallet, including their micro-credentials.”
The Association of Registrars of the Universities and Colleges of Canada (ARUCC) owns MyCreds™. ARUCC provides leadership in the post-secondary education field and service to its member institutions nationally and internationally, helping foster the advancement of registrarial practices and learner focused service delivery in Canada.
