Digital credentialing: implications for the recognition of learning across borders

This report offers critical assessment of digital credentialing based on a review of the recent literature and a series of interviews with key actors. It argues for increased synergies between these developments and the quality assurance systems that have become closely associated with the implementation of a new generation of qualifications frameworks internationally. It offers an outline of the ecosystem of these digital credentials and shows the convergence and divergence with traditional qualifications frameworks. It proposes that world reference levels – now in development – are key to expediting recognition of skills and qualifications across borders.
