Adding Value to Skills-Based Credentials with Digital Standards
January 2024 | In collaboration with 1EdTech
You already offer high-quality educational products and provide your learners with the skills they need to succeed. Offering your credentials with trusted, verifiable, and interoperable digital credentials increases the value and usability of your credentials through open standards. In this session, we dive into Open Badges and the Comprehensive Learner Record Standard™ (CLR Standard™), explain how they can enhance learner and employment records, and provide a comprehensive view of learners’ achievements. Learn how these standards empower learners to take control of their credentials, the new opportunities they can unlock for your organization and employers, and why it’s important to integrate them into your digital ecosystem.
This session features Rob Coyle, Technical Program Manager at 1EdTech; Kelly Hoyland, Director of Higher Education Programs at 1EdTech; Darin R. Hobbs, VP of Learning & Employment Records at Western Governors University; and Kymberly Lavigne-Hinkley, Director, Community of Care Ecosystem at WGU. Jeff Cobb and Celisa Steele of Tagoras facilitate the discussion.
The Surge of the Third Sector: Implications for Your Learning Business
March 2021 | Sponsored by Blue Sky eLearn
Learning now contributes more to overall GDP and productivity than technology. That shift is driving dramatic growth in the third sector of education—the sector that serves the millions of adults who continue to learn and grow in the decades that follow their secondary and post-secondary education.
In this session, we explore five key developments that have contributed—and continue to contribute—to growth of the third sector. More importantly, we’ll examine the implications of that growth and unpack what a fuller awareness of the sector might mean for your learning business’s strategy.
Jeff Cobb and Celisa Steele, co-founders of Tagoras and Leading Learning, lead this session, sponsored by Blue Sky eLearn. Liam O’Malley, vice president of association solutions at Blue Sky eLearn, also shares his experience working with organizations in the third sector.
The Promise of the Learning Experience Platform: What an LXP Is, Why You May Need One, and How to Choose
April 2021 | Sponsored by EdCast
Learning experience platforms, or LXPs, have been gaining ground as an alternative or enhancement to traditional approaches to learning management. They promise personalized learning—a learner-centric, Netflix-like experience that many organizations yearn for but have been unable to achieve with a typical learning management system (LMS).
While many learning businesses have yet to explore LXPs, much less implement them, they are an established fact of the learning platform landscape and their impact is likely to be significant in coming years. In this one-hour session we’ll take a closer look at what an LXP is, why a learning business might need one, and how to go about selecting the right LXP for your learning business.
