We’re thrilled to announce the availability of Stackable Achievements, a new product feature that allows credentialing organizations to issue verified credentials for complete learning paths with many levels of badges.

This feature, a blend of technology and educational foresight, is set to redefine how learning is documented and utilized in educational and professional environments.

Elevating Credential Detail and Security

Technical Innovation:

  • Stackable Achievements are built on the Open Badges 3.0 and CLR 2.0 standards, ensuring they are tamper-proof and interoperable across platforms.
  • These standards enable complex metadata, evidencing learning outcomes, and skills, to be securely attached to each badge.

Enhanced CLR Integration:

  • Territorium’s Comprehensive Learner Record (CLR) now supports the recording of multiple credentials, providing a comprehensive view of a learner’s journey.
  • This integration allows for a seamless presentation of a learner’s achievements, bolstering the clarity and credibility of their educational profile.

Empowering Learners and Institutions

For Learners:

  • Stackable credentials illustrate ongoing skill development and educational progression, making them highly valuable for career advancement.
  • Learners can now present a verified and detailed record of their skills to potential employers, enhancing their marketability.

For Institutions:

  • The feature enables institutions to offer more dynamic and relevant educational products, such as microcredentials and digital badges, aligning with modern career paths.
  • It also aids in attracting students by offering recognized and valued qualifications, improving student engagement and completion rates.

Practical Application and Flexibility

Versatile Use Cases:

  • Territorium’s platform supports various use cases, from competency-based badges to full course completions, offering unprecedented flexibility in credentialing.
  • Institutions can easily integrate their existing degree offerings with these digital credentials, meeting accreditation requirements and professional education needs.

Learner-Centric Design:

  • The platform connects credential offers to a skills and learning outcome library, enabling learners to match their achievements with career paths and job opportunities.
  • This feature not only empowers learners in their career planning but also ensures that their education is directly relevant to the job market.

Territorium’s introduction of Stackable Achievements marks a significant step forward as we bridge education to employability.

Territorium continues to lead in the CLR, LER, microcredential, and badging space by combining technical standards with the practical needs of learners and institutions.

This innovative feature not only enhances the detail and security of credentials but also aligns education with career progression, offering a strategic path to success for learners and a valuable tool for educational institutions.
