Edalex, the company powering your single source of truth for skills and learning data, has won the EdTech Badging/Credentialing Solution Award in The EdTech Awards 2023 for Credentialate, its Credential Evidence Platform. Edalex’s openRSD platform was also announced as a finalist in the Skills Solution (a.k.a. 21st-Century Skills) category. The EdTech Awards by EdTech Digest recognise people and organisations for outstanding contributions in transforming education through technology to enrich the lives of learners everywhere. Celebrating its 13th year, the US-based program is the world’s largest recognition program for education technology, recognising the biggest names in edtech – and those who soon will be.
“We’re thrilled to have our platforms recognised through The EdTech Awards 2023 – especially given their impact on learners around the globe,” said Dan McFadyen, Managing Director of Edalex. “Credentialate has been demonstrated to increase confidence in expressing their skills in 76% of learners. openRSD contains the world’s largest free-to-use collection of Rich Skill Descriptors: essential human- and machine-readable building blocks for the skills economy.”
The EdTech Awards were established in 2010 to recognise, acknowledge, and celebrate the most exceptional innovators, leaders, and trendsetters in education technology. Past winners include Adobe, Claned, Soundtrap, Blackboard, Discovery Education, DreamBox, Edthena, Promethean, Scholastic, SMART Technologies, zSpace and more. This year’s finalists and winners were judged based on various criteria, including: pedagogical workability, efficacy and results, support, clarity, value and potential.
“A very big congratulations to all The EdTech Awards 2023 finalists and winners,” said Victor Rivero, who as Editor-in-Chief of EdTech Digest, oversees the program. “To the innovators, leaders, and trendsetters of education technology, you are the way forward.

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.
