Commentary by Stephen Downes

The Lumina Foundation has sponsored an initiative top extend the traditional university transcript. "Student knowledge that might be documented in next-generation transcript prototypes include co-curricular or experiential learning -- maybe working on a campus robotics team -- or even soft skills like critical thinking and good communication. Digital badges also could be included." A variety of options may be considered: "Notable players include Parchment, the National Student Clearinghouse and Campus Labs. Related offerings include those from Merit Pages, Degreed and the Mozilla Foundation’s Open Badges."
