Informal learning, alongside competence-based learning and learning outcomes is getting a lot of attention lately. A large number of countries and organizations are busy defining guidelines for validating and evaluating informal learning experiences and formalizing its outcomes. In a globalized society where technology has brought together different cultures and educational systems, managing to keep track of a learner's competences is a daunting task, and especially when trying to take into account the competences acquired through informal means. We are proposing a framework to gather, organize, evaluate and showcase a user's informal learning using a largely social approach.
