Topic: Announcements & Reminders
Colin_Reynolds,_Ed_Design_Lab: Hey good morning I'm supporting a project with the T3 Network and US chamber and a Design Lab that is called experience you or we're looking at using AI to support taking unstructured learner and experience data and putting it in a structured formats for Ellie ours and we have our kickoff event coming up in just over two weeks so I'll put a link to the. ✪
Colin_Reynolds,_Ed_Design_Lab: chat or in the chat for that event. ✪
Colin_Reynolds,_Ed_Design_Lab: To register but I would love to have people come out and we'll be putting out a little bit of an overview and project call with that as well but I'll put the link in the chat for more info or if you have any questions feel free to shoot me an email. ✪
Naomi: Bear and Demetria sisters General announcements for the year great I missed the intro my sound wasn't working quite right but thanks hi everyone I just wanted to make mention that velocity is actually kicking off an education cluster beginning in February I can absolutely send around some information to everyone in this group anyone on the call and I'll just mention that velocities clusters are really around focusing on the issues of adoption and how do we drive you know greater adoption of. ✪
Naomi: verifiable digital credentials you know in general. ✪
Naomi: To mention that invite everyone who wants to reach out to me with for more information to reach out and I can also circulate some information that kind of gives an overview of what we're planning thanks. ✪
Naomi: It's kind of more like a working group it's a and what I circled I'll circulate will actually explain it better but basically they're their groups of members and we want to make sure that with the education cluster specifically we're communicating with the broader ecosystem in education but basically focus on how do we drive adoption so that's really what the focus is. ✪
Topic: Review topics from 2022 including use cases, Open Badges 3.0, Plugfests, and community demos. Bring your thoughts about what the task force should focus on in 2023.
<naomi> *And to better explain "Cluster": Cluster is Velocity Network Foundation's term for facilitated groups of Members interested in driving adoption in a particular sector/geography, but the scope of work is really determined by the participating Members... its about planning, information-sharing, forming partnerships, aiding implementations, and we anticipate a few events to educate, for the Ed Cluster, specifically, I'd like ties to the greater ecosystem, but all that is TBD... it begins with our exploratory meetings, so will share some information so everyone can consider joining us.
<sharon_leu> Reach out anytime: firstname.lastname@example.org.
<manu_sporny> Sharon, estimated start date for Plugfest 3? :) -- I'll put myself on queue to ask.
<sharon_leu> @Manu - hope to kick it off Q1, but now details yet. some of this depends on what is the point of interop we settle on.
<nate_otto_(he/him)> I think the 1EdTech CLR "Candidate Final Public" will be published within a couple days. Staff have the "all clear", but maybe don't have the publication location ready yet.
<deb_everhart_(credential_engine)> OB3 and CLR2 include CTDL terms for achievement types
<deb_everhart_(credential_engine)> this connects the credentials w/ semantic interoperability for the meaning of the achievements
<simone_ravaioli_(vc_edu)> Gataca, Walt.ID, EQAR shared on EBSI and Trust Models
Deb_Everhart_(Credential_Engine): Yeah sure thanks I also just put in the chat the the fact that ob3 and CLR to include CTL for the credential transparency description language for achievement types so that's an important piece of work that many of us did together this year other things are that we were on the the leadership team working with the. ✪
Deb_Everhart_(Credential_Engine): national governors. ✪
Deb_Everhart_(Credential_Engine): Association skills driven States Ellie our cohort there were 12 States participated in that cohort for Learning and exploration all 12 of those States expressed a strong interest in moving forward with Ellie are implementations but not all of them have the resources to do that at that time at this time seven states are moving forward actively in. ✪
Deb_Everhart_(Credential_Engine): 23 in a next phase. ✪
Deb_Everhart_(Credential_Engine): Is implementing lers at the state level so that's going to be I think a big a big push forward in this calendar year for for lers and and then a specific thing at credential engine besides our broader support for this work to specific things one is we've developed an LR action guide. ✪
Deb_Everhart_(Credential_Engine): that goes through. ✪
<kaliya_identitywoman> can you post the link in the chat please
Deb_Everhart_(Credential_Engine): Understanding engaging analyzing implementing and sustaining the next version of that guide is coming out today and I'll put a link in the chat and the minute we also convened an Advisory Group that produced some very detailed guidance on using CDL in the alignment field of open badges. ✪
Deb_Everhart_(Credential_Engine): In conjunction with that thanks to Nate Auto were also piloting this month releasing as soon as possible a badge publishing tool that makes it easier to publish badges to the registry and to include links in the alignment field so lot of work on this front in 2022 and looking forward to really seeing a lot of this work coming into fruition and even scale and 2023. ✪
Deb_Everhart_(Credential_Engine): Be happy to thanks. ✪
<deb_everhart_(credential_engine)> suggest that plugfest 3 include demonstrating linked open data in CTDL in the alignments, so that the interoperability includes semantic meaning
<davidc> I raised this revocation topic on the spec in December
<phil_l_(p1)> Topic for 2023 - APIs to wallets to add services to it.
<simone_ravaioli_(vc_edu)> Well noted, P1 !
<naomi> *Great question! Would love an early scope!
<deb_everhart_(credential_engine)> I'd be happy to be included in the discussion
<phil_l_(p1)> Topic for 2023: when is a new data model needed and design guidance for them
<manu_sporny> "We don't know yet" is a perfectly fine answer.
<manu_sporny> I was definitely hoping it wasn't: "We start in 1 week!"
<phil_l_(p1)> (that is, for education and training focused data models)
<deb_everhart_(credential_engine)> semantic interoperability could at least be "extra credit" :-)
<deb_everhart_(credential_engine)> information in CTDL about organizations can provide part of the structure for transparency about issuers
Phil_L_(P1): Yes thank you can you hear me okay I put some things in chats for consideration for next year but I think a couple of them have to do with guidance around the design of apis for services that actually interact with wallets and in that regard the topic that was mentioned by Colin earlier in terms of using AI to facilitate. ✪
<deb_everhart_(credential_engine)> including QA organizations
Phil_L_(P1): Comes to mind in the term the sense of an AI agent interacting with an individual's wallet but also Marty and I have talked also about a wallet that is able to reach out and interrogate skill credential skill credential Frameworks and competency taxonomy he's on behalf of the holder so the issue of apis for wallets and the second is more is sort of more general which is. ✪
Phil_L_(P1): at what point what kind of guidance. ✪
Phil_L_(P1): To be there for new training and education credentials in a sense the work that's been done by one Ed Tech has taken the general wave API excuse me the general data model for VC 1.1 and then use that as a framework for the ways you've mentioned before OB B 3 and C LR V 2 with its own context files and additional modifications but at what point does the VC 1.1 data model actually. ✪
Phil_L_(P1): regenerate a family of additional credentials supporting. ✪
Phil_L_(P1): Use of Education and Training and are there guidelines are constraints that we should consider around that thanks. ✪
<phil_l_(p1)> The LinkedClaims credential comes to mind
Simone_Ravaioli_(VC_EDU): Quickly given the focus that we put on bootstrapping open badges 3 with the plugfest I think it wouldn't make sense to liaise more with one attack and possibly talking about this at their digital credential Summit that is coming up and the February I don't see any. ✪
<sharon_leu> Simone - I'm working on a session with Marty.
Simone_Ravaioli_(VC_EDU): I'm so we can take this offline with whoever is interested and more generally I think just continuing to Foster the adoption of this new version of the spec which is radically different and it's inflection point would be important for this community and maybe this is something that will do continue to do with breakfast 32 stuff like that. ✪
<sharon_leu> For the 1EdTech meeting.
Nate_Otto_(he/him): Great thanks yeah I just wanted to thank you for a great presentation and a wonderful past year thank you Dimitri and to everyone who has contributed to this space especially in the implementation area as we know there's lots of different options for the various different layers of the tech stack for using verifiable credentials and it's fun to see the convergence on some common patterns where we can be successful for some of those options as we try and put some of our services. ✪
<simone_ravaioli_(vc_edu)> Great to hear Sharon ! That is covered then. Happy to be involved if needed.
Nate_Otto_(he/him): Them it's going to be essential to work together in this new year through plugfest through conferences like what Simone I just mentioned plus 12 that and through direct collaboration between different developers and vendors so looking forward to a great year of working with you all figuring out what the successful patterns are for our users to be able to get credentials into their wallets and from their wallets to the places where they will make a difference in their lives one other point of collaboration. ✪
Nate_Otto_(he/him): that I'm working on right now is the one Ed Tech implementation. ✪
<simone_ravaioli_(vc_edu)> Thanks Nate !
Nate_Otto_(he/him): The open badges three nclr aspects this is open for comment on one at X get Hub and would love some comments and their thanks shout out to Jen who put in some great comments just a couple days ago we can keep working together on documentation a but maybe even more importantly on actual implementations. ✪
