Commentary by Stephen Downes

Another part of the infrastructure we need to build in education: "A small group of private firms are seeing increasing demand for their repositories for e-transcripts, as colleges move away from paper versions for both incoming and outgoing students." I've talked about the need for this service in project meetings and people look sceptical. But now they will be looking at how to interface with the vendors who have set up transcript services. There's probably a process: first the records are stored and managed digitally, then the records are available at service desks (such as the offices that print and mail them), finally the records are available as APIs or services to (authorized) third party clients.
