Recognition and Verification of Credentials in Open Education

This project output will suggest:

  • A standard set of meta-data descriptors for recognising open learning in line with the learning passport
  • An implementation guide for using the blockchain (or other centralised digital certificate schemes) to record this meta-data
  • An ontology connecting qualification frameworks, diploma supplements, ECTS modules, systems for accreditation and open learning accreditation systems
  • A technological roadmap which would allow fully-open credentials
