The Apereo Foundation today announced that EQUELLA has graduated from the Apereo incubation process. The incubation process ensures that software has met a key set of required indicators before being fully endorsed by the Apereo Foundation.
It was also announced that an Advisory Board of EQUELLA users is being established to ensure ongoing governance of the project. This will include Mara Hancock, CIO of California College of the Arts, and Lee Webster Director Learning Technology Innovation and Services at TAFE Queensland.
Edalex continues to work closely with the Apereo Foundation to ensure the ongoing evolution of the EQUELLA platform, whilst also continuing to provide account management, hosting, development, consulting and client support services for Asia Pacific-based EQUELLA clients.

Powering your single source of truth for skills and learning data
Edalex is an EdTech company powering your single source of truth for skills and learning data. Founded in 2016, Edalex develops technology solutions that extract hidden value from educational data to make it accessible and more meaningful. Edalex brings together the team behind the CODiE award-winning openEQUELLA open source platform that centrally houses teaching and learning, research, media and library content.
In 2019, Edalex launched Credentialate, the world’s first Credential Evidence Platform, that helps discover and share evidence of workplace skills. Credentialate creates order from chaotic data, provides meaningful insight through framework alignment and equips each learner with unique, rich, industry-aligned evidence of their skills and competencies. Credentialate has continued to evolve at an accelerated pace, informed in partnership with educators and industry leaders from around the world.
openRSD was released by Edalex in 2022 to help create, store and share rich skill descriptors (RSDs) and RSD collections. openRSD uses Edalex’s open source technology stack to create locally- and globally-relevant libraries of RSDs that are open to all contributors and consumers. RSDs are the building blocks of a skills-driven labour market. They structure skills data, add context around a particular skill and are both human and machine readable. RSDs bring equity to the learner and the skills ecosystem and provide an even playing field for skills recognition.
