During this 60 minute webinar Ildiko Mazar will try to convince her audience that education can only be called partly open if at the end of a learning journey the issued credentials are closed. Following her introduction she will discuss with the participants the latest achievements of 2 Erasmus+ co-funded projects, namely OEPass and MicroHE, focusing on two ambitious products in development, the so-called Learning Passport and the Credentials Clearinghouse.
The OEPass Learning Passport, that was partly inspired by the European Diploma Supplement, is already openly available for testing, and it applies a complex composition formula to document open learning credentials.
The MicroHE Credentials Clearinghouse, tackling an even greater challenge, attempts to use an open meta-data standard to create a prototype tool for recording, displaying, verifying and sharing micro-credentials issued by higher education institutions.
