Microcredentials for Authentic Lifelong Learning at Johns Hopkins University
IMS Global Digital Credentials Summit 2021
March 3, 2021 @ 2:30 PM – 3:00 PM EST
Comprehensive Learner Record (CLR) is an effective way to transmit knowledge, skills, and abilities earned by learners to employers. On top of its traditional renowned programs, Johns Hopkins University offers Continuing Education Unit (CEU) programs for adult learners. AEFIS is the leading ed-tech company that empowers authentic lifelong learning. Using AEFIS end-to-end CLR student life design platform, Johns Hopkins University provides learners with evidence of their skills and achievements explicit and shareable to employers. Participants of this session will see the AEFIS CLR Learner Dashboard which provides all of the resources learners need to connect with coaches, review their skills, and organize their stories. Learners can share their assertions in full or in part with employers. AEFIS CLR—the first of its kind compliant with the IMS Global JSON standard—is accessible to learners in real-time and shareable to other platforms that can ingest the structured data.
