This COVID-19 has lately changed the way individuals study and teach by making it available at any time, from any location, and at a low cost. Traditional face-to-face teaching and learning are losing popularity as more students opt for hybrid or all-online learning. In today's fast-paced business, the advent of the gig economy needs the development of individuals and experts with specialised skill sets to fill increasingly specialised positions. Higher education providers needed a more dynamic and quick style of learning to match these demands, which Micro-Credential, a well-known player in 21st-century training and education, delivered. Micro-credentials are nanodegrees, also known as small qualifications, that demonstrate a person's talents, knowledge, and/or experience in a certain subject area or ability. After completing a micro-credentials course, the learner will receive a digital badge. The adoption of Micro-Credential courses in Malaysia was investigated using desktop research and a survey questionnaire in this study. This study examines how Micro-Credentials are used in Malaysia's top three public universities, as well as a poll of Malaysian students' Micro-Credentials habits. Micro-credentialing appears to be gaining popularity at Malaysian universities. The research will be broadened to collect and analyse data for the preliminary study, which will focus on learners' attainment of Digital Badges for Micro Credential Computing Courses using a quantitative research technique.
