THE ARUCC NATIONAL NETWORK
Working Together To Support Learner Mobility
Through this network, Canadian colleges and universities are providing credential wallets to learners, giving them 24-7 access and helping them securely send their documents, badges, microcredentials, transcripts, and parchments wherever and whenever they want - anytime, anywhere.
MyCreds™ | MesCertif™ is transforming post-secondary learner mobility in Canada.
This site explains the overall project. Visit ARUCC's MyCreds™ | MesCertif™ site for more information on the credential wallet platform.
WHO WILL BENEFIT?
Learners who move into, between, and beyond our Canadian colleges, institutes, and universities
Build and support a National Network that supports them on this journey.
Since beginning the project, we have been determined to do just that. The National Network which is now launched, provides a secure, permission-based electronic highway for official academic documents and a learner credential wallet to ensure learners are served consistently, securely, efficiently, and effectively. The case for change is clear.
What does MyCreds™ | MesCertif™ do?
MyCreds™ | MesCertif™ is transforming academic document and credential exchange for students and graduates of Canadian colleges, institutes, and universities by providing portable credential wallets for learners and direct peer-to-peer document and credential exchange between post-secondary institutions, employers, government and others.
For the National Network, ARUCC is collaborating with Canadian post-secondary institutions, provincial application centres, and others to support and grow MyCreds™ | MesCertif™, a national credential wallet and trusted document and credential exchange environment that is Canadian based.
Our core objectives?
Improve permission-based, trusted access and portability of learner documents and credentials.
We need to work together to achieve the following:
Provide learners greater portability and access to their documents and credentials - anytime, anywhere;
Protect learners, Canadian higher education institutions, and government from increasing document fraud;
Provide faster and more efficient service to learners, employers, and governments;
Support greater labour mobility.
Canadian post-secondary institutions and their partners need to exchange learner data with each other across Canada and with trusted credential providers beyond our borders to support learners with admissions, transfer credit, and access to funding and the job market.
We needed a shared solution to make this happen which is why the ARUCC created MyCreds™ | MesCertif™.
