Validating the VMPass Learning Passport

screen-shot-2014-11-19-at-130158.png

The VMPass project is developing a framework for the accreditation of informal and non-formal learning, a topical issue, which is generating a lot of interest at the moment, particularly because of the implications of learning through free resources and course, such as OER and MOOCs. A related project, OpenCred, has carried out a detailed review of accreditation of informal and non-formal learning, which is complementary to VMPass.

A key feature of VMPass is the concept of a learning passport. This consists of three parts: information from the OER provider, the learner and the accrediting institutions. We are currently validating the learning passport and are looking for volunteers to look at the learning passport and complete a short survey on their views on it. If you are able to complete this please email me at gconole@gmail.com. Thanks in advance!
