Credentialing learning in the European OER Ecosystem

The Challenge for the Credentialing of Learning from OERs

This report, based on expert interviews, has been produced by the Encore+ project to examine credentialing methodologies in the European OER ecosystem. It is intended to provide impetus to discussion, and so to move forward both debate on the topic and practice in the field.

The report is framed by three educational discourses that converge in the domain of OER:

1) Interoperable representation of learning achievement, including the use of badges.

2) Increasing focus on microcredentials, especially in the context of workplace


3) Competence-based human resources management
