  19. 19. COMPETENCY ALIGNMENT • Problem 1: An issuer wants to make clear which officially defined competencies are certified by the Open Badges • Problem 2: An earner wants to see which competencies have to be evidenced to earn an Open Badge • Objective: Assist issuers in defining OB with competency alignment • Solution Step 1: Improve Open Badge Specification for the BadgeClass to allow better alignment to competency frameworks • Solution Step 2: Design a web directory filled by crawling semantic competency definitions and providing JSON-LD format search results that can be used in OpenBadge definitions.
