Credential Engine and Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) are collaborating to develop new opportunities for advancing student success. SNHU is a nonprofit, regionally accredited university with an 80-year history of providing high-quality education to students online and on campus. They have long been a leader in competency-based learning and innovative approaches to helping students advance and achieve credentials that are aligned with in-demand careers.

By partnering with Credential Engine, SNHU seeks to apply the Credential Transparency Description Language (CTDL) — the standard common language to describe credentials and their associated skills and competencies  — to their own data structures for connections among credentials, courses, competencies, pathways, and links to job skills.

This groundbreaking collaboration will set a precedent for applying the power of linked open data to illuminate personalized pathways for students.
