Hello all,

I’m reviewing this: https://www.w3.org/TR/vc-data-model/#data-schemas <https://www.w3.org/TR/vc-data-model/#data-schemas>

Could folks please explain to me the uses of credentialSchemas in comparison to @context files in JSON-LD? Is it that @context files name the attributes and credentialSchemas provide the information about how to validate the data/semantics? 

Can you provide some real-world examples? Bonus points for human centered examples such as identity,  education, &  workforce. :)
