Why Publish on the Credential Registry?

There are a number of ways to add data to the Registry, depending on both the publishing organization’s bandwidth as well as the amount and type of available data. By adding data to the Registry, stakeholders fuel the creation of services and tools that allow students, employers, and workers to choose the best path forward. When credential information is published to the Credential Registry, the CTDL links each data point (e.g. aligning credentials and skills), making it possible to compare that credential’s data across all other credentials in the Registry. Together, the CTDL and the Credential Registry make credential and skill information accessible, discoverable, comparable, and actionable—enabling the vision of credential transparency to become a reality.
