OPEN SKILLS MANAGEMENT TOOL
The Open Skills Management Tool (OSMT, pronounced
"oz-mit") is a free, open-source instrument to facilitate the production of Rich Skill Descriptor (RSD) based open skills libraries.
GOALS OF OSMT
Establish learner-centered thinking as the standard for technology solutions
Create a community of contributors with shared values
Share our work to generate goodwill and a sense of community
Drive adoption of learner-centered technology solutions to rapidly advance innovation
Let's get building. OSMT is ready for you to stand up and begin working on developing your own skills library.
Ability to create, batch import, manage, and publish RSD collections for use.
Search and filter available skills data.
Ability for an organization to publish RSDs.
Support standardization and consistency.
Sharing of skills data to minimize the risk of duplication and human error.
OSMT helps to create a common skills language by creating, managing, and organizing skills-related data. An open-source framework allows everyone to use the tool collaboratively to define the RSD, so that those skills are translatable and transferable across educational institutions and hiring organizations within programs, curricula, and job descriptions.
