Hi all,
Building on the discussions we had over the last few weeks, I've kicked off
a roundup of educational verifiable credential types that this task force
is interested in pursuing in pilots (focusing specifically on the content
and structure of the credential).


From the recent discussions, we've learned there are a lot of longer-term
alignment efforts underway, but we don't want to wait until everything's
done. The goal will be to come up with future-looking examples of VCs plus
guidance we can give to implementers (around relevant competency
frameworks, etc.) More details are in the paper.

This also brings up the trickier issue of credentials that currently use
XML, and need to continue doing this in the near term for legal signature
requirements (e.g. EDCI and eIDAS requirements).

We'll start discussing on next Monday's VC-EDU call, but please feel free
to add any comments before then.
