Promoting Credential Transparency via a Linked Data Registry

January 22, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST

Today’s 300,000+ credentialing marketplace is large and confusing for both students and employers. Leading institutions are helping improve this situation by adopting the open schema Credential Transparency Description Language (CTDL) to describe their offerings in an internet-based Credential Registry. This schema has matured over the past several years to now support competencies, financial aid, learning opportunities, assessments, career pathways, and quality assurance claims. In this webinar, you will learn directly from institutional leaders who are already using CTDL and find out how you can use the registry to improve your credentialing practices.


  • Identify the institutional processes and supporting staff roles needed to advance credential transparency
  • Articulate how technical specifications for credentials and credential-related data empower institutional leaders to effectively differentiate their offerings
  • Reference technical resources institutional staff can use to advance credential transparency


  • Jeff Grann, Credential Engine
