Territorium is First in U.S. to Earn CLR 2 and Open Badges 3 Certifications
- By Kristal Kuykendall
Global ed tech company Territorium has become the first U.S. company to earn certifications in CLR 2.0 and Open Badges 3.0 from 1EdTech, according to a news release.
The new certifications mark a milestone in Territorium’s mission to further standardize digital credentials — or “comprehensive learner records” — that are easily shared between digital wallets, the company said.
“This connectivity allows learners to access and share their skills and achievements obtained across multiple platforms in one ecosystem and have them verified by employers and higher education institutions,” Territorium said.
The CLR 2.0 and Open Badges 3.0 certifications mean that TerritoriumCLR can issue badges that are readable, and interoperable, with other ed tech providers’ platforms, expanding the usage of students’ digital credentials and providing CLR accessibility at more institutions.
The comprehensive learner record is an open data standard from 1EdTech and is the official standard set by the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers for digital learner records, according to the 1EdTech website.
The TerritoriumCLR “captures learning within and beyond traditional classroom settings” from internships to extra-curricular activities, creating “a granular record of verifiable competencies and skills” for each student, according to the company.
Territorium also announced that it has received the Power Learner Potential Award-Digital Credential from 1EdTech “for leading the way in creating innovative, open, and trusted ecosystems that power learner potential.”
"Getting to the future of education requires cross-boundary leadership spanning IT and curriculum and instruction from stakeholders across K–12, higher education, suppliers, governments, and philanthropic funders," said 1EdTech CEO Rob Abel. "Our Power Learner Potential Awards recognize those organizations that go above and beyond to take those collaborations to the next level to address the key educational leadership imperatives of our time."
