Edalex today announced the launch of Edalex Content Services (ECS), a suite of platform-agnostic, cloud-based extensions delivering “clever content in the cloud”.
Developed in close consultation with educational design partners, ECS enables institutions and their usersto extend the content capabilities of existing educational platforms. ECS incorporates rapidly evolving technologies such as machine learning from 3rd party providers including Amazon and Google to deliver innovative content-centric services.
The first service to launch is ECS AutoTag, which uses machine learning to analyse images and documents and automatically generates metadata tags, streamlining the contribution process for academics, while also improving categorisation for easy discovery.
ECS AutoTag is available now for the openEQUELLA digital repository and leading LMS platforms. A second service, ECS Video, will be launched in late 2019.

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.
