eduID is quite complex and we see a number of questions come back regularly. We will answer them below.
DigiD is legally framed and therefore limited to government services mentioned in the law. These strict rules ensure that it is not possible to use DigiD in education or education-related use cases. The costs of DigiD also play an important role.
Primary and secondary schools and MBOs (senior vocational institutions) use the ECK iD for the recognition of students in the educational resources chain. ECK iD therefore has a limited scope and changes if the student switches to another sector. As a result, ECK iD is not suitable for flexibility and lifelong development. However, an ECK iD could be part of a student's eduID.
