IMS Global has developed a standard for extended transcripts that transparently articulates competencies and co-curricular achievements. Using JSON-LD, it connects credentials for interoperability between academic and employer systems. Credentials are delivered and verified securely, including through blockchain. It is harmonized with Open Badges and the Credential Transparency Description Language.

Outcomes: Analyze the transparency and connectedness of credentials at your institution * Understand how new credential standards communicate learning achievements and contribute to the value of credentials * Explain to colleagues how to get started implementing extended transcripts
