Credential Schemas

Pocket verifiable credential schemas represent fit-to-purpose lightweight credentials that reflect a large variety of educational records, statuses and affiliations, awards, recognitions and achievements, and non-traditional credentials like skills, endorsements and portfolio assets.

Pocket schemas have different fields than some other broader standards like Open Badges version 3.  Because Pocket treats credentials as data linked to a richer set of organizational metadata, they can contain IDs that reference other metadata records available only to users connected to the Pocket network.

Our current set of schemas are publicly hosted and available here.  These schemas are a work in progress, and new versions are released regularly.
