City & Guilds selected Learning Locker®, the open source LRS, to power their solution. Learning Locker allows TechBac® to scale upwards of 50,000 learners with peaks of intensive usage throughout the year.
Learning Locker’s advanced API is used to process and display data to both learners and their tutors, as well as reporting back usage to City & Guilds for analysis.
Learners visualize their work on the City & Guild’s Skills Wheel; a personalized dashboard of progress. Learners can export this data to their own tailored CV, customizing the information they present back to potential employers.
Integrates learning data from multiple systems, websites and apps.
Predictive learning analytics give tutors a view of who is likely to need extra help.
Combines xAPI with Mozilla’s Open Badges to create an evidence-based recognition system.
Issuing Open Badges
Tutors track progress through the Performance Optimizer. The system helps predict areas of risk to the Learner’s progress and allows them to intervene at the right time. Tutors recognize the Learner’s competence in each of the seven skill areas by awarding a Mozilla Open Badge.
The Mozilla standard makes accreditation evidence-based and portable. Learners can export their Open Badges to their CV and the wider web as proof of their achievements.
This portability is achieved using the xAPI standard; the first solution to combine both xAPI and Open Badges into a production environment.
