Terms of Service

Learning Labels

Learning labels are definitions for learning expectations at a granular level. They might represent an assignment, task, activity and experience. Either the originator of the resource – a publisher, game creator, VR designer, etc. or a third party – a teacher, professor, trainer, or practitioner creates the label. The other component of a learning label is the quantitative aspect, particularly Skill Points.

The goal is to create a static representation of a label whose underlying information does not change. If the labels become obsolete or do not meet the guidelines below, then they are removed from circulation.

While providing considerable latitude, at any stage, we reserve the right to permanently remove the label if:

  1. the label is clearly inaccurate;

  2. contains any profanity or inappropriate information;

  3. duplicates or replicates current labels;

This procedure is similar to what a social media or publisher goes through in accepting new posts or information, though freedom of speech and social currency are not primary objectives. Each of the labels are also evaluated for singularity, as a standard definition with quantitative information in skills.

In many ways a nutritional label is a similar representation: clear concise and readable, factual, and provides a basis of comparison. But while a nutritional label uses precise physical measurements, the learning, course, and job labels require elements of subjectivity or interpretation to create or evaluate them (as a peer review).

Skill Points might add perceived value to a resource. If TASK 1 earns a total of 1000 Skill Points and TASK 2 earns a total of 3000 Skill Points, a teacher might assign or a learner choose TASK 2 because of more perceived value.

Our service could be likened to providing a printing press for authors. At no stage do we declare creating the learning (being a publisher) nor being proficient in providing the review (such as an accreditation).

Singularity is necessary for a number of reasons. If TASK 1 earns a learner 100 Skill Points and then there is another definition or change to the label and another learner earns 200 Skill Points for the same task, then there is a challenge. For this reason, there are not replicates and labels are deleted as they are deemed inaccurate or become obsolete.

Label Accuracy

There is a built in peer review process where other capable practitioners, ideally those using the learning label participate to verify the accuracy of the label. Given the breadth (60,000+) of skills and the depth in acquiring them (some take decades to learn), this review process plays a crucial role in checking the labels. The Peer Review includes:

  • Line by line check of each skill and related inputs to the Skill Points algorithm;

  • General credence to the accuracy of the entire label;

  • Inputs for subjective comments;

Each label that gets created goes through both a system and human review process from our organization. An algorithm goes through a ‘sense making’ review of the labels as they get created. This will get better as more labels populate the system.

A person (layman in the field) checks each of the skills on a label and the underlying resource for any glaring inaccurate information.

Finally to anchor the learning expectation or job requirements, the person creating the label is highly encouraged to reference relevant education, higher education, or training standards.

Some suggested future requirements regarding accuracy and the labels:

  1. make peer reviews a requirement when learning labels are cloned;

  2. use aggregate peer review data on the labels;

  3. use skill coefficients and growth rates to put more emphasis on practitioners setting proportions on skill being applied and less on assessing and quantifying skills;

Profanity, Information Deemed Inappropriate

If there is profanity or inappropriate information in a label or a linked resource, the label will be removed. The goal of the labels is to provide clear, concise definitions for learning and jobs for readers at any age or background.


All submitted labels with go through a redundancy check and if deemed a duplicate will be removed. Criteria for determining label singularity:

  • Each label requires a URL or link to the actual resource. Check for uniqueness.

  • Labels sharing a similar title. Labels might share the same title, but this raises a flag for a more thorough review.

  • Referencing the same standards. A reference to the same standard will be flagged for a more thorough review.

If removed for duplication, the creator of the label will be notified of the current label and could either modify the task to establish uniqueness or reference / clone the label.

Cloning a label keeps all the standard definition and quantifying fields intact, but allows the practitioner to incorporate their label into their own workflow. This enables the practitioner to:

  • change “Provider” and “Title” fields;

  • provide a unique URL and landing page for the label;

  • create their own performance based series using the labels;

To enforce singularity, all learning labels are in the public domain, therefore free to use and create. If a practitioner would like to use the label privately, they should clone the label.

Course Labels

Course Labels, also Skill Syllabus in another interpretation, are definitions for courses (classroom, online, MOOC, or blended), projects or training modules. They are published publicly or privately. This designation is up to you. Course Labels are derived from collections or series of learning labels chosen by the practitioner (you), so are one way to use learning labels privately.

In addition, one value proposition of Course Labels is to establish a basis of comparison of similar courses – what are differences in applied learning in an introductory programming, economics, or calculus course, for example.

While providing considerable latitude, at any stage, we reserve the right to permanently remove the label if:

  1. the label is clearly inaccurate;

  2. contains any profanity or inappropriate information;

Job Labels

Job Labels are definitions for applied skills and responsibilities for a formal job title or informal position. They are published publicly or privately. This designation is up to you. Job Labels might be used as the top level of a learning pathway, so referencing course labels and/or learning labels.

In addition, one value proposition of these Job Labels is to establish a basis of comparison of similar jobs – what are differences in past experience and first year application of skills for jobs with the same title.

While providing considerable latitude, at any stage, we reserve the right to permanently remove the label if:

  1. the label is clearly inaccurate;

  2. contains any profanity or inappropriate information;
