As all levels and sectors of education contemplate ongoing developments in digital technology, distributed and fragmented models of learning, stackable credentials, and educational unbundling the potential for a system like blockchain to bring security to a diverse landscape of evidence of learning, recognition of learning and acknowledgement of learning becomes more relevant.
As MOOCs, SPOCs, online courses, RPL and alternative credentialling become more ubiquitous the main stakeholders in education, industry and government are realising the need for systems that enable higher levels of trust when certificates, awards and prior learning recognition are at stake.
This session will discuss some of the needs and some of the attempts already in place globally.
