I agree, I think in this case I simply used the previous template and made sure to add the word credential, but if one has freedom of not to use the template then the word degree should be removed. If major is removed than category or similar should be added. Many on LinkedIn don't have the option to remove a degree, but they can state next to their credentials a certificate. EDX and the University X are using it. When one completes the program in data science or designing distributed software there is a category listed be it Computer Science or Engineering etc. And yes X should be added to the University as most of the courses are via extension - X.
