Why is Credential Transparency Valuable?

Whether you are building an app to aid with college search, or building the next generation of AI to create customized career pathways, credential data is at the core of your application. This is why credential transparency is critically important to developers—it provides a single, open map of the credential marketplace that anyone can use to build their application. Moreover, incorporating the Credential Transparency Description Language (CTDL) into your products positions your team to deliver unique features, improve workflow integrations, and grow your business in new ways to help solve the challenges we face today and better prepare for the ones of tomorrow.
