#2โ€”Issue Credentials from your Institution to a Learner

Example: Stefania has completed a graded course in "Electrical Systems 1" at her local community college.

Let's walk through the steps to issue Stefania a course completion with LearnCard.

Steps to issue a credential to a Learner:

  • Stefania completes her course in Electrical Systems 1

  • Stefania verifies her identity with your Institution by connecting her LearnCard wallet to the LearnCard Bridge

  • Stefania requests a credential for completing "Electrical Systems 1" course.

  • You cryptographically sign and send a credential to Stefania.

  • Stefania accepts the credential into her LearnCard.

To accomplish this, you can either setup your own, interoperable Issuer by following these steps, or you can reach out to us for support and custom development to help connect your Institution.
