Data is dull business, but it can be very useful and important for both the individual and the organization. Learning Locker is new software that was recently developed by HT2 Ltd. It’s an open source learning record store that changes the way organizations and individuals can use learning data.
Learning Locker lets individual learners own their learning records. The idea is that each learner is given an actual card or something similar, showing all the learning he or she has completed. The value here is that learners keep track of what they have accomplished and can use their own data to enhance their career. For example, the data might help when they ask for additional responsibility or new challenges, or when they apply for new opportunities. It could also assist if there's a question regarding learning completion.
Learning Locker also benefits the organization. The data starts with each organization: it owns the data initially. The organization can supply individual learners with their own data, so this data becomes owned by both the individual and the organization.
