Teaching the World to Code
The Treehouse mission is to bring affordable technology education to people everywhere in order to help them achieve their dreams and change the world. They’re committed to the democratization of education; making education accessible to students of all races, genders, sexual orientations, and socio-economic backgrounds.
It’s clear that Treehouse are well on their way to seeing their mission become a reality with over 180,000 active students in over 190 countries learning in-demand skills through incremental, small steps. Their incremental, project based and enjoyable courses have proved a phenomenal success with individuals as well as companies such as Mailchimp, Nike, and Instacart.
Treehouse started providing digital certificates via Accredible for their courses in 2016 to continue their focus on job readiness. Since the skills that students build are designed to be incredibly impactful for careers, it’s important that there’s a quick, easy way to prove that training has been completed and for students to showcase their learning on their personal and professional profiles.
“Accredible makes it easy for us to deliver beautiful digital certificates to our students. We’re really happy with how they look and the ease at which they can be shared and embedded by our Techdegree students. Digital certificates make it easy to celebrate the learning achievements of our community.” – Londa Quisling, Chief Product Officer at Treehouse.
“We’re enormous fans of the work Treehouse are doing! We believe wholeheartedly in the democratization of education and are extremely honoured that one of the leaders in online education trusts Accredible to be part of their experience.” – Alan Heppenstall, CTO of Accredible.
Accredible is an industry-leading digital credentialing platform which allows users to securely issue, manage, track, and verify their certificates and badges. Its platform is used by over 400 organizations worldwide, including Google, UC Berkeley, and IEEE. More than 1,000,000 students have received certificates, badges or blockchain credentials through their platform.
At Treehouse, we believe that understanding, communicating with and controlling technology is a fundamental skill that everyone should have the opportunity to learn. With this in mind, we offer our community of over 163k+ students across the world a comprehensive resource that helps them to learn the necessary skills to be part of the technology evolution. We also believe in offering each of our students the opportunity to learn the skills they need — whether they have existing, little or no previous experience — to be job ready for the tech industry.
Our team works to fulfill our mission by providing the best technology education online to our students of all ages and backgrounds, in over 190 countries. Furthermore, we don’t just educate our students, but also ensure that we provide a learning environment that is consistently valuable, interactive, engaging, and most importantly fun.
