• increase quality
• Re-use credential information for:
• onboarding
• HR planning
• performance review
• Accreditation
• Quality Assurance, systemic analysis
• Enable “continuous credentialing”

“Paper Silos”
Issues with certification today
freedesignfile.com/92259
Transparency issues
 “Dumb” paper often needs other
documents, e.g. syllabus
 Proxy only – not the “whole story”
 Easy to forge
Physical issues
 Difficult to share, easy to lose
Recognition issues
 Lack of granularity
 Lack of context
 no links to supporting evidence
 Experiential learning not valued
 Lack of alignment, transfer,
articulation (“stackability”)
