Formal and Informal Contexts for Learning
Support for learning and progression in formal educational environments; within
workplace settings (for example as part of Degree Apprenticeships in the UK and
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) provision in employment), and in
informal (co and extra-curricular) contexts.
Supporting social and geographical mobility, specifically by enabling digital
student data portability as envisaged by the signatories to the Groningen
Declaration, amongst others.
The presentation of learning outcomes, not only by enabling individuals to present
holistic accounts of their own development based upon clearly constructed
narratives, but also in connecting to digital credentials related to curricular,
co-curricular and extra-curricular learning.
