Digital credentials provider Credly has become the first platform to receive official certification from the IMS Global Learning Consortium for compliance with the Open Badges Standard. Originally developed by the Mozilla Foundation, the Open Badges specification is designed to “ensure a plug-and-play ecosystem for digital credentials earned across different environments,” according to a press release. Management of the standard was taken over by IMS Global this past January. The current version of the standard, Open Badges Standard 1.1, focuses on interoperability and portability. In the works now is version 2.0, which will incorporate “new endorsement functionality, enhanced data support for evidence and greater access to digital badges across multiple languages, locations, platforms and industries.”
