The Center for 21st Century Universities at Georgia Tech has been exploring the use of blockchain technologies to create decentralized transcripts that allow users to combine evidence of a wide variety of learning and achievements into credentials that are relevant to potential employers. In this session, we will provide an update on Georgia Tech's work and describe the exciting possibilities of blockchain-based academic credentials.
As described in the CNE report, these are “new decentralized transcripts based on blockchain technology that allows students to combine evidence of learning and achievements into credentials that are relevant to potential employers.”
Specifically, the Center has been experimenting with Blockcerts. Blockcerts is an open standard for creating, issuing, viewing, and verifying blockchain-based credentials. Participants in this brown bag seminar will be issued Blockcerts.
