There is an ongoing transformation of education towards a skills-focused and tech-enabled educational model. The learning community is shifting away from traditional four-year degrees, with major tech companies no longer requiring them and instead emphasising skills. In this information-rich Credentialate Guide, we ask – What is the Next-Generation Learning likely to look like? What are the challenges and opportunities associated with shifting to skills-based education? How can technology, such as digital credentials, be leveraged to create a more robust and accessible system for documenting and verifying skills and competencies? What role do community colleges, vocational education, and emerging technologies like AI play in the evolving education landscape.
Making the shift to skills starts with a process that many find challenging: surfacing skills that are actually taught and learned through existing courses, and making them visible to educators, learners, and employers. For that to happen we need to move from conceptual discussions to the realm of practical application.
Personal evidence and the skills they recognise are game changers for learners to earners and those seeking to progress their careers. But the greatest benefit by far, is that they provide a fuller picture to educators, learners and employers, in a way that is transparent, contextualised and relevant. Let’s look at why personal evidence is on the rise and its impacts on the stakeholders of the skills ecosystem.
We’re diverting from our Stakeholders in the Modern Credential Marketplace series in this blog post to talk for a moment about Dark Data. What is Dark Data? You probably generated Dark Data at some point today, not because you were travelling the Silk Road or looking for a new identity – but more for an activity like checking your bank balance, looking at your medical records, or digitally signing a document.
Edalex, the EdTech company that unleashes the power of skills data, digital assets, and personal credentials, announces the creation and general availability of openRSD, an open library for the storage of Rich Skill Descriptors (RSDs). In establishing openRSD, Edalex is able to utilise its open source technology stack to promote RSD use by creating locally- and globally-relevant libraries of RSDs that are open to all contributors and consumers of RSDs. At launch, openRSD contains RSDs created by organisations in the US as well as Australia, with additional RSDs under development.
