The Validation and Brokering of Competence: Issues of Trust and Technology

Interactive Learning Environments, v15 n2 p107-116 Aug 2007
Campus Canada promotes lifelong learning through the articulation of workplace and other experiential learning for academic credit. This paper describes the recent re-development of the Record of Learning (RoL) component of the Campus Canada's e-Portfolio System. In matching the academic members' desires for provision of secure e-transcripts with learners' desires for validation of educational assertions, the RoL provides decentralized secure service without creating clerical log jams. The new RoL system paves the way for web services interoperability between registrar services and for automated creation of secure Records of Learning by workplace trainers. Further development is foreseen to establish the RoL as a separate service interoperable with a variety of e-portfolio and credentialing agencies.
