Digital Transformation of Education Credential Processes and Life Cycles - A Framework of Research Questions Based on the Main Challenges

Authors:

Keywords: Credentials; Education credentials; Digitisation; Challenges in digitisation; Digital Badges

Abstract:
This article describes the challenges that arise in the using and managing education credentials, and from the switch from analogue paper-based education credentials to digital education credentials. We analyse the available literature and notice that this transformation - from paper to digital for education credentials - has not been the focus of research so far. Using an approach based on the use cases and identified challenges, we propose a general methodology to capture qualitative descriptions and measurable quantitative results that estimate the effectiveness of a digital credential management system in solving these challenges. This methodology is applied to the European Union Horizon 2020 project QualiChain use case, where five pilots have been selected to study a broad field of digital credential workflows and credential management. It can form the basis of a future framework that will capture the whole life cycle of educational credentials, from creation, storage, management, access control, till it expires or is retracted.
