Work Begins on the Demonstrator at a workshop 15-11-18 at City of Glasgow College. We took the advantage of Gary from APPII being in Scotland more frequently to begin more regular meetings. Here we have some images of the workshop where we begun working through the practical issues of integrating SQA data into the APPII service.

An important part of the project is to create a ‘demonstrator’ to help stakeholders visualise what a working digital certification system would be like and what difference it might make to their working lives and to business processes.
Early ideas for the demonstrator are user stories, visuals and screen shots of working systems.
We have had our first project meeting on 1-10-18 and we are organising our college staff placements – more here soon.
John attended the Scottish meeting of the Blended Learning Consortium at Glasgow Clyde College to discus the work of the project. John described how it would benefit learners and employers and how the learner portfolio element of the project originated in Africa. We will be talking more about the ‘African Connection’ later.
