Edalex, an EdTech company on a mission to surface learning outcomes, digital assets and the power of individual achievement, has announced new tiered licensing options for Credentialate, the world’s first Credential Evidence Platform. The licensing options include Basic and Enterprise packages and a Free Pilot has been introduced, to better suit institutions at all stages of their micro-credentialing journey.

Credentialate was developed in close collaboration with leading research-based university design partner UNSW Sydney, in support of a multi-year, cross-faculty micro-credential community of practice and research project. Credentialate is the world’s first Credential Evidence Platform and integrates with existing LMS and assessment platforms - wherever learner data resides - to provide a personalised evidence page for the learner.

This evidence is full of rich and robust information on the learner’s personal achievement of skills and competencies. The institution also receives comprehensive achievement data, unlocked from the LMS, to visually analyse trends and insights across courses and indeed whole programs. Credentialate can also issue digital badges via integration with leading badge agents.

According to Dan McFadyen, Managing Director of Edalex: “With higher education undergoing transformation almost unilaterally, it’s key for future-focused institutions to adapt quickly to better meet student and industry needs, whilst remaining competitive. One of the clear messages we’ve received from the market is the challenge in securing a budget in the current COVID-19 climate.”

“To address that barrier to progress we introduced a Free Pilot program. As an evidence-centric platform, there’s no better way for institutions to quickly see the benefits for their learners and the institution,” he continued. “A pilot can help get a micro-credentialing program up and running faster using automation and allows for the ability to deliver at scale, with confidence,” McFadyen concluded.

Institutions can sign up online for the Free Pilot - after which the Edalex team will facilitate a 1:1 workshop with institutional stakeholders, in which a tailored implementation plan will be developed. The 6-month Free Pilot includes an integration with the institution’s LMS and a badge agent. At the conclusion of the Free Pilot, Edalex will provide an End-of-Pilot report, to assist the institution in defining the next steps in their micro-credentialing journey.
