Abstract:

This report examines how digital credentials and learning and employment records (LERs) are shaping the ways people access education and career opportunities around the world. A wide range of education and labor market technologies is proliferating, especially in North America and Europe. Although these new technologies may expand opportunities for many learners and workers, they also risk leaving many communities and individuals behind.
