The DISCO VET project come up with a data structure of course and content typology based on current European and national standards and new research. The resulting grid of extra metadata enabled a better mapping and manageability of their badges for VET, HE and CPD institutions.
Based on the grid, an open source displayer was developed, accompanied by a 30 hours course on open badges and DSCs targeted to the issuers and validators to support the implementation of the displayer platform in their institutions.
All public results will be shared on this page during the project.
