The vision is trying to explore and develop a series of recognition and accreditation practice and methodology for students' learning activities beyond university campus, including but not limited to MOOCs and social activities, to extend university students' channels of knowledge access. With this vision, university students could learn from outside materials (e.g. MOOCs from other universities or even in other languages) and any social learning activities.
There are some universities have already tried recognizing MOOC courses' Statement of Accomplishment as credit for "elective course", contributing to only 1% of the total credits a student needed for graduation. It normally does not affect any mandatory courses, and even harder for social learning activities to be taken into consideration.
The idea (or say potential solution) is to build a team of evaluators and reviewers, under the Department of Academic Affairs in a university. They are responsible for evaluating the quality of outside courses or social learning experiences submitted by students - or recommend any to their students.
They could internally develop a working (recognition) process, and using any criteria or rubrics (e.g. QM - QualityMatters) to judge the quality of the outside courses or learning activities proposed.
