Canadian Digital University Transcript Less Useful Than Australian Ones

Athabasca University offered a digital version of my MEd transcript. This is not as useful as the one issued to me by ANU. That has both the testamur, and transcript. The former is the fancy looking certificate you hang on the wall, the latter is the details of your course results. Athabasca just provides the transcript electronically, and so somewhere you are applying to might still ask for a genuine paper copy of the former, negating most of the value in having an electronic transcript. Also the company Athabasca have contracted to provide the electronic service charges $10 Canadian per year for access, whereas the company ANU uses charges nothing.

The Canadian transcripts are provided by MyCreds, which is owned by the Association of Registrars of the Universities and Colleges of Canada (ARUCC).
