What is the Value of a Credential Engine Partnership?

Developers are partnering with Credential Engine in many different ways to make it easy for everyone to benefit from modern linked open data networks. Across many use cases, a common schema and connected data on the web are creating value for everyone. For example:

Career exploration and navigation. More and more innovative credentials are being described and connected with career options using the Credential Registry, which is a reliable source for structured, authoritative, and detailed data on all types of credentials. For more information on consuming data from the Credential Registry, read our guidance and resources on our technical site.

Credential data management. With over 700 defined terms and connections to other linked open data networks, the Credential Transparency Description Language (CTDL) schema can fully describe everything that makes a credential unique in the broad marketplace. Organize and connect data from different sources using this open schema to overcome the barriers of siloed data and systems.  For more information on how products can publish to the Credential Registry, read our third-party publishing policy. To view data already in the Registry, see the Credential Finder.

Digital credentials to communicate individuals’ achievements. Digital credentials are only as valuable as the meaningful data they contain. Credential issuing products can use an alignment field to connect to a world of linked open data that adds meaning and context to an individual’s achievements. Learn more about how your digital credentials can use CTDL data.
