Skills Parser (2022)

From the initial design of the system (2016), I always wanted to allow for the learning labels to be created automatically where there is little or no data entry. This would speed up the process and help make them more accurate. A learning labels is sophisticated and layered, so accomplishing this is a challenge. A few years ago, I introduced Skills Parser which would add or suggest the skills section. I recently updated this feature, so standards and requirements also get added.

The Skill Parser now accepts pre-defined education, higher education, and training standards; of course, these standards must already be indexed in the system. The current system loosely supports four sets of national standards and an interface to build ‘custom standards’. Moving forward, our proposal is to add standards to the system as requested. A practitioner simply references the standard code or uploads a file where there standards are referenced.

Requirements are now also picked up by the parser. So, for example, using Microsoft Windows, Google Android, or Apple IOS platforms are requirements that might get referenced (and this is shown in the first case of the video).

Altogether, if practitioners upload a file(s), provides a supported URL, or copy and pastes text, then they significantly speed up the process in building the label. Another option is to simply type in structured or unstructured tags or keywords into the copy paste field, such as standard codes, skills, or requirements, and let the Skills Parser pick them up.
