Topic: Verifiable Credentials for Education Task Force

Kim Hamilton Duffy:  Talk about what it is, lets check with Joe 
  ad Christopher if we need the 7 day countdown [scribe assist by 
  Orie Steele]
Orie Steele: ... Idea is, launch a task force within the CCG, as 
  context, some of you may remember that we had a similar task 
  force, and we did not make a lot of progress
Orie Steele: ... This has been pushed forward by the ^
Orie Steele: ... Consists of 12 universitues form US, CA, 
Orie Steele: ... Idea is to help universities that are tryign to 
  use blockchain and digital credentials
Orie Steele: ... They notices that vendors were dominating the 
Orie Steele: ... They wanted to pool resources to understand 
  impact of digital credentials possibly blockchain
Orie Steele: ... They wanted to be able to use their resources, 
  students, tech teams, to build prototypes of the kinds of tools 
  that students would need
Orie Steele: ... Idea is not that they would build a comercial 
Orie Steele: ... They want to continue library support for 
  existing standards
Orie Steele: ... Prototypes for interop
Orie Steele: ... Storage, did methods that integrate with 
  exisiting university systems
Orie Steele: ... Those efforts have been ongoing, announced a 
  year ago.
Orie Steele: ... Slow to start, last few months, there will be a 
  white paper and planned for pilot projects
Orie Steele: ... White paper discussed requirements and 
  principles, and the use of DIDs and VCs
Orie Steele: ... Specifically, the difficulties of realizing this 
  ecosystem in the educational space
Orie Steele: ... Microcredentials, things like that...
Orie Steele: ... There are interesting concerns that come up with 
  Academic VCs, what happens if the student needs to reclaim...
Orie Steele: ... What are best practices for student privacy, 
  legal issues, etc....
Orie Steele: ... During our discussion, because of GDPR, things 
  are complicated...
Orie Steele: ... GDPR promotes privacy by design, we decided to 
  focus on it as the start for privacy...
Orie Steele: ... We are woking to figure out how to deploy these 
  things and uni's
Orie Steele: ... We need to discuss, how to make this work with 
  more than just 12 universities
Orie Steele: ... We want to align with the other ongoing efforts 
  for promoting learner sovereignty
Kim Hamilton Duffy:  Not just limited to production, how are they 
  used, what will consume them, how do we work with comercial 
  partners [scribe assist by Orie Steele]
Orie Steele: ... Many data standards won't comprehend VCs and may 
  include PII
Orie Steele: ... DIDs are a new concept
Orie Steele: ... Many assume the VC is hosted by the issuer or a 
  trusted 3rd party...
Orie Steele: ... Assumptions start to pollute the data model, and 
  we need to resolve through discussion with education inst. and 
  comercial partners
Orie Steele: ... Work ongoing at T3
Orie Steele: ... We wanted to focus on the questions that are 
  specific to the VC ecosystem
Orie Steele: ... How do we use terms of use? to prevent resharing
Kim Hamilton Duffy:  We don't want to reinvent, we want to think 
  through the migration to a VC data model [scribe assist by Orie 
Orie Steele: ... From data format concerns with XML....
Orie Steele: ... Should we express VCs in XML?
Orie Steele: ... There have been lots of work with OpenBadges
Orie Steele: ... Other concerns, how do we avoid segmentation
Nate Otto: (The Europass Digital Credentials Infrastructure 
  project has chosen a VC + XML approach)
Orie Steele: ... There will be variations, people should not need 
  to reinvent
Orie Steele: ... Leaner as an alternative to subject in 
Orie Steele: ... Consider lifecycle, recovery,
Orie Steele: ... Options for universities to recognize or reissue 
  from universities that may disapear
Orie Steele: ... Deliverables...
Orie Steele: ... Use cases  are standard
Orie Steele: ... Credentials capturing professional development, 
  diplomas and transcripts
Orie Steele: ... Other credentials are not out of scope, but we 
  are seeking alignment
Orie Steele: ... Around common points, like diplomas
Orie Steele: ... We call out relationships to external groups: 
  W3C CCG, W3C DID....
Orie Steele: ... We need a way to ask for clarifications...
Orie Steele: ... We don't want to reinvent, we will rely on 
  industry expert partners
Orie Steele: ... We need to discover existing credential schemas, 
  or understand why they don't work
Orie Steele: ... Learner, worker, military ecosystem under 
  discussion by T3
Orie Steele: ... For Co Chairs: we have Kim from MIT and James 
  from McMaster
Manu Sporny:  Thanks kim, the task force writeup is excellent.... 
  there has been an explosion about learner records, credentials, 
  US gov interests... [scribe assist by Orie Steele]
Drummond Reed: The "explosion" is a natural consequence of the 
  Verifiable Credentials Data Model spec going to 1.0.
Orie Steele: ... Where is the center of mass?
Orie Steele: ... Deliverables seem concrete, professional dev, 
  diplomas, transcripts
Orie Steele: ... Wondering how the community can help with it?
Orie Steele: ... I don't see where some things fit in...
Orie Steele: ... What is the focus?
Kim Hamilton Duffy:  There are a few specific things, related to 
  IPR [scribe assist by Orie Steele]
Orie Steele: ... T3 innovation network seems to be the center of 
Orie Steele: ... We see industry partners joining there
Orie Steele: ... When it comes to moving standards forward, IPR 
  comes up
Orie Steele: ... The task force is not a standards body, we want 
  to have the converstations that go into drafts be protected.
Orie Steele: ... Stay tuned for greg to produce a map / graph of 
  how things relate to eachother
Orie Steele: ... I am involved in all of them...
Nate Otto: (When my spot on the queue comes up I can address 
  non-IPR aspects of the "center of mass" question. There are other 
  efforts reaching varying stages of maturity that have strongly 
  affected the recent uptick in hype in the educational use cases 
  besides VC 1.0)
Orie Steele: ... We have been disucssing, there are fuzy edges
Orie Steele: ... There are IEEE, and <inaudiable>
Orie Steele: ... We are keen to not reinvent things
Orie Steele: ... We plan to offload as much as possible to 
  standards bodies
Orie Steele: ... We will release guidance for IMS Global
Orie Steele: ... There are impacts regarding verification that 
  will take time to understand the impact to existing ecosystems
Orie Steele: ... For all of us in the space, its very muddy, we 
  need a map of group activity and deliverables
Orie Steele: ... We want to find the best place to do the right 
Adrian Hope-Bailie:  Im interested in healthcare, should I wait 
  for ed vertical to formalize before i advocate healthcare group? 
  [scribe assist by Orie Steele]
Kim Hamilton Duffy:  Manu please respond... regarding other 
  verticals, such as gov records [scribe assist by Orie Steele]
Joe Kaplan:  All members of task force with join CCG and sign 
  CLA? [scribe assist by Orie Steele]

  discussion / objection

Drummond Reed: +1 To approving on this call
Chris Webber:  Echoing support for the task force [scribe assist 
  by Orie Steele]
Manu Sporny: +1 In favor of this task force.
Orie Steele: ... I would like to be part of that
Orie Steele: ... Also appreciate greg, if you are putting that 
  map together
Orie Steele: ... I think its important to reach our to the groups 
  that are doing this work, we can get help from data exchange side
Nate Otto:  I have been involved, can shed some light on center 
  of mass [scribe assist by Orie Steele]
Orie Steele: ... There are pools of mass
Orie Steele: ... We can shine light on a single end to end use 
Orie Steele: ... We can identify a purpose, set of technologies 
  to serve that use case
Orie Steele: ... Its important to get end to end
Dan Burnett: Educational use case was one of the primary ones 
  targeted in the original VCWG charter, so good to see this run to 
  broad support and deployment
Orie Steele: ... We need to uncover real world value and address 
Orie Steele: ... Excited to get started, we have this cluster of 
  tech, VC Data Model, OpenBades, DIDs, etc...
Orie Steele: ... We can show a path through these
Chris Winczewski: Helping Orie out with notes because the names 
  are difficult. Please include ARUUC, AACRAO, and the Gronigen 
  Declaration Network in the conversation.
Orie Steele: ... We ca help explain how conversation and 
  compatability wors
Orie Steele: ... We have partners ready to go to production that 
  do millions of creds per year
Drummond Reed:  Task force sounds good. Lots of interest exists. 
  Several folks Evernym can recommend. There is an explosion 
  because we have VC Data Model 1.0! [scribe assist by Orie Steele]
Orie Steele: ... Excited congrats
Manu Sporny:  There are other verticals interested, federal 
  governments interested in doing work here [scribe assist by Orie 
Orie Steele: ... We are seeing education space vertical
Orie Steele: ... We will see US, CA federal similar veritical 
  work in groups
Orie Steele: ... Some overlap exists between healthcare and 
  education use cases
Kim Hamilton Duffy:  Thanks all [scribe assist by Orie Steele]
