Digital Credentials and Badging Alliance

Join the Digital Credentials and Badging Alliance

1EdTech Alliances are for the purpose of ensuring interoperability in practice and keeping implementing organizations current on the evolution of a specific set of 1EdTech standards. 1EdTech Alliances provide organizations who want access to development resources, testing suites and conformance certification for a specific set of 1EdTech standards to ensure reliable integrations with platforms. 1EdTech provides Alliance members this support at a fraction of the cost of custom integrations and, most importantly, steps in on an ongoing basis to resolve issues that arise.

Under the Alliances, 1EdTech provides self-service online support to implement conformant products. When testing is completed, 1EdTech issues a conformance certification mark that 1EdTech stands behind. What this means is that 1EdTech will get involved directly in any issues that arise and work across organizations to resolve. 

Joining in the Digital Credentials and Badging Alliance provides access to the development resources and certification for the Comprehensive Learner Record (CLR) and Open Badges specifications. Becoming an 1EdTech member is the only way to achieve official 1EdTech conformance for these certifications. Conformance seals are only issued to and maintained with current 1EdTech Alliance, Affiliate, and Contributing Members. 1EdTech does this in order to deliver on interoperability in practice on an ongoing basis. This benefits large and small organizations alike in creating and maintaining a vital, innovative, and open marketplace for educational technology products!  The certification program is managed and evolved by current 1EdTech Members. This creates the community ownership needed to achieve high levels of interoperability and earn the trust of buyers in interoperable products.  See all of the Alliance Benefits.
