-- Describe the roles of the primary stakeholders in this ecosystem: learning providers, job seekers, and employers.
-- Create personas/archetypes that represent each of the stakeholders.
-- Write one or more “before badges” user stories that articulate specific problems or areas needing improvement in this ecosystem.
