New framework alignment hub for Factory

Mar 2, 2021

CanCred’s Don Presant introduces an exciting new way to align micro-credentials and informal badges to open frameworks on CanCred Factory and Open Badge Factory, similar to how Pro Factory subscribers can now align badges to ESCO, the multilingual classification of European Skills, Competences, Qualifications and Occupations.

CanCred.ca has partnered with Open Badge Factory and Ibbaka Talent to develop an integrated solution for alignment to a shared framework hub that can house a wide variety of frameworks.

These open access customizable frameworks can be for technical or human skills or for other important subjects, such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Open frameworks are offered under a Creative Commons model so that everyone can use and evolve them at no charge. Proprietary frameworks will also be available for paid use for organisations who need them.

The service will be launched officially in the second quarter of 2021.
