ADL iFest: July 31 - August 2, 2017 at the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center

In collaboration with the National Training and Simulation Association (NTSA), the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative is excited to announce iFest 2017. iFest provides unique opportunities for military, government, industry, and academia professionals to share the latest in distributed learning innovations. This year’s theme emphasizes learning analytics with associated topics, such as technological inter-operability (e.g., xAPI), implementation, privacy, and security. Learn more http://www.ndia.org/events/2017/7/31/adl-ifest

Among the program offerings is a panel on how competency standards are key to advanced distributed learning. ADL is represented on the TAC and some of the panel are fellow TAC members.

Competencies are pervasive in education, training, and workforce development. They are used to describe learning objectives, a learner’s current state of progress, the relevance of learning materials, job requirements, and so on. Standardized digital competency data are needed by smart apps such as personal assistants, adaptive learning environments, and intelligent tutoring systems as well as for competency-based credentialing, staffing, and talent management applications. In this session, distinguished panelists representing leading standards development organizations will discuss their perspectives and how their standards relate to personized learning, learning analytics, lifelong transcripts, and workforce transition. After the panel discussion, Dr. Jim Belanich of the Institute for Defense Analyses will facilitate a discussion with the attendees about competencies in the DoD.

Panelists (and their affiliations):

  • Joshua Marks, IMS CASE Project
  • Eric Shepherd, HR Open Standards
  • Michael Sessa, PESC
  • Rosalyn P. Scott, Medbiquitous
  • Robby Robson, CASS Project and IEEE Standards Association
  • Jeanne Kitchens, Credential Engine
  • Discussant: Jim Belanich, Institute for Defense Analyses
  • Moderator: Avron Barr, IDA and IEEE LTSC

February CTDL Release

Dear CTI/Credential Engine Technical Advisory Committee and Partners,

A Credential Transparency Description Language (CTDL) release will occur on Friday, February 24, 2017. This release follows the initial release on November 11, 2016. Following the CTDL release policy, all updates for the February release are now available for TAC and partner review via the CTDL Pending page. This web page shows all of the CTDL classes, properties and concept schemes that are ”Stable”, “Unstable” and “Pending.” All items with a status of “Pending” are scheduled for release on Feb. 24th and will change to a status of “Stable.”

To filter to see only “Pending” items:

  1. Go to http://credreg.net/ctdl/pending
  2. In the footer at the bottom of the window, select to filter by clicking on “Show Pending.”
  3. Scroll down the page to see all classes, properties and concept schemes with a status of Pending.
  4. To see the details of each pending item, click on the term’s panel. This will open the panel to show all of the related information.

If you have any comments about the CTDL schema items marked as “Pending” please either use the TAC Google Group or email credregtechnicalplannning@gmail.com. Comments need to be submitted by Wednesday, February 22, 2017.

This same process will be followed for all subsequent releases. Also, on the day of the release, a History page on the website will be updated to show all updates from “Pending” to “Stable” as well as other updates such as deprecations. The team will send an email and update the Google group on the day of the release to include direct links to the information about the CTDL release such as the change history. The CTI/Credential Engine (CE) team appreciates your review and comments.

Sincerely, CTI/CE Technical Team

January CTI/Credential Engine TAC Meeting

The January 2017 CTI/Credential Engine TAC Meeting will be held this Friday, January 27th at 11AM Eastern / 10AM Central / 9AM Mountain / 8AM Pacific / 4 PM GMT.

The agenda for this meeting includes:

  • Welcome and Housekeeping - Jeanne Kitchens
    • Brief update on the official formation of the Credential Engine Nonprofit
    • In addition to the TAC, four new advisory groups have been formed
    • Quick poll for the TAC: The new Credential Engine informational website to be launched in early February has a page for identifying group members. Each page identifies member name, title, and organization. How would TAC members prefer to be included?
  • New CTDL Overview and Documentation - Stuart Sutton

Pilot-Site Partner Guidance Roadmap Webinar Followup

Thank you to our partners who were able to participate with today's "Pilot-site Partner Guidance Roadmap: Analytical and Technical Approach Webinar." The PowerPoint used for the webinar is attached and the archived webinar is also available for viewing here.

To progress with the CTDL and Credential Registry, all partners, please complete the Online Credential Information Sources and Formats Survey.

The purpose of the survey is to gain additional understanding of the information and data sources and formats used to provide public information about credentials on each partner’s website. The credential and technical contacts should complete this survey together. Based on working together to complete this survey, it should take 10 – 15 minutes to complete it.

Additionally, the CTI/Credential Engine (CE) team is offering the opportunity for 6 – 10 partners to participate with co-designing partner road-map guides and testing the implementation of CTDL to either populate the Registry directly or via harvesting. These partners will not be asked to change their current technologies but will work with the CTI/CE team to undergo an analytical process and use open source technologies, on top of their existing technologies, to implement and test the CTDL and directly publish or harvest data to populate the Registry. The intent is to identify a limited set of credentials, not necessarily every credential offered by the organization.

Please complete the survey by February 9, 2017 and let us know if you have any questions.

Education Technology Standards
If you’re interested in knowing more about standards in the ed tech space. The AAP PreK-12 Learning Group has published a new free white paper on standards in the ed tech space. The paper is a synthesis of the Ed Tech Forum, a full-day event at the 2015 Content in Context conference that featured representatives from nine different standards/specifications groups. Each one gave a 10-minute “TED Talk” on their standard, its purpose, and where it fits in the ed tech development landscape. This document includes summaries of those presentations as well as links to videos, slide decks, and related resources for each standard covered. Finally, it includes a list and brief summary of a number of other standards we didn’t get to that day. Download the paper.
