WHAT'S NEW: Digital credentialing: OLT Commissioned Grant

What’s the challenge? Higher education providers credential learning based on signals and codes such as marks, grades and credit. How might technologies enable additional methods, so that:

  • students are encouraged to create and curate rich evidence of their learning;
  • educators have richer ways to warrant and credential such evidence; and
  • providers can test new business models associated with credentialing?

Who’s in the project? Deakin University; Curtin University; International educator networks: Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory (HASTAC, US); Association for Authentic, Experiential and Evidence-based Learning (AAEEBL, US) and the Centre for Recording Achievement (CRA, UK; Commercial and government agencies: Telstra, Cisco, Mozilla, Education Services Australia.
