To propose a W3C community group through which to pursue the CTDL2scema.org work we need to

  • submit a name for it
  • submit a description of it
  • encourage people to support the creation of the group
    The group will be approved when five people support its creation
  • encourage people to join the group
  • choose a chair (or chairs) for the group
    and then it'll be ready to go.

My draft for the name and description is as follows:

Educational and Occupational Credential Descriptions in schema.org
(short name: schemaOcCred? edCredSchema? -- we need this for the URL of the group)

The aim of this community group is to show how educational and occupational credentials may be described with schema.org, and to propose any additional terms for schema.org that may be necessary. Educational and Occupational Credentials are defined as diplomas, academic degrees, certifications, qualifications, badges, etc., that a person can obtain through learning, education and/or training. They are typically awarded on successful completion of an assessment of relevant capabilities. See also the Connecting Credentials glossary of credentialing terms.

Related work includes the Credential Transparency Description Language (CTDL) developed for the Credential Engine and the W3C Verifiable Claims Working Group. The work of this group will complement these, with a focus on integration with schema.org and on describing a credential that is being offered rather than the claim to posses one.

Any comments? Suggestions for improvement are welcome.

Suggestions for a short name (which will be used in the community group URL) are particularly welcome.

Any related work or similar that I should add?

All going well, I would like to propose the group early next week.

I have raised an issue on the schema.org github repository and sent an email to the schema.org W3C community group about it. Let's hope for positive feedback from those channels.

I have proposed a W3C Community Group.

It now needs the support of four other people for it to happen. To support it you must have a W3C account, and then visit the Community Groups page, and scroll down a little to the proposed groups section. Click on the button to support the Educational and Occupational Credentials in schema.org Community Group.

If you do not have a W3C account, registering for one is free, but you do need to give an assurance that you will not be contributing an IP that cannot be only licensed under W3C's terms. This is appropriate for contributing work to schema.org.
