DXtera Collaborates with Eduworks to Connect Companies to Colleges for Reskilling American Workers

Corvallis, OR – Eduworks Corporation (“Eduworks”) has received a second round of funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to lead an effort that will help meet skill demands created by digital transformation. This award is part of the NSF Convergence Accelerator “Future of Work at the Human-Technology Frontier” track and will provide up to $5 million to research, develop, and pilot an AI-enabled virtual assistant called Skillsync that connects employers and colleges for the purposes of defining and meeting reskilling needs.

Skillsync was designed and prototyped in a Phase I effort by a team that included Eduworks, the Georgia Institute of Technology (“Georgia Tech”), the Credential Engine, and industry partners. The Phase II team will expand to include the Business Higher Education Forum, the National Labor Exchange, the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning, the University Professional and Continuing Education Association, the DXtera Institute, LibreTexts, and several other partners who will provide data and technology and participate in pilots. Skillsync is powered by a Competency Catalyst platform that leverages the Competency and Skills System (www.cassproject.org) developed by Eduworks and open data infrastructure developed by the Credential Engine.
