An introduction to Blockchain and Encrypted Labs, applications of Blockchain technology, and current use cases.
The Blockchain Education Network is made up of students and alumni across the world who are creating bitcoin and blockchain clubs on their academic campuses. By exploring this socioeconomic experiment within the safety of their peers, students build new expectations and innovations. In aggregate, the combined effort of all these clubs creates a rich web of interconnected blockchain hubs across the world.
In this article, Donald Clark describes what Blockchain is, and outlines how it can be used in education.
The MIT Media Lab's Learning Initiative and Learning Machine have released the first version of an open-source project that builds an ecosystem for creating, sharing and verifying blockchain-based educational credentials. The project represents the first step in a broader undertaking that is focused on creating new technologies and collaborating to evolve standards that lift the entire ecosystem.
Recording and verifying candidates' credentials can be costly and time-consuming for academia and businesses alike. Now, some education facilities are turning to bitcoin technology for help. Blockchain was developed alongside bitcoin, and works like a decentralised ledger, storing information on a global network that is publicly available and should be safe from tampering.
This article explores the technology of the Blockchain, who is investing in this technology, and how this applies to education.
Carnegie Mellon, MIT Media Lab, and Learning Machine host groundbreaking conversation about open standards for blockchain credentialing in higher education and beyond.
In this short EdSurge article, Kerri Lemoie explores the implications of Blockchain for higher education.
Blockchain technology could offer a more learner-centred alternative to traditional credentialing.
This article explores how an “internet of value” can redefine the very nature of transactions and transform the global economy.
An article published by McKinsey & Company, based on an interview with Liana Douillet Guzmán, who discusses what areas around Blockchain are ripe for development and how the story is changing.
Early adopter universities have a number of strategic aims for massive open online courses (MOOCs), including advancing education research, improving access to education, and demonstrating their merit. One area of education research of particular interest to the University of Notre Dame is that of digital badges.
Building a collaborative culture in and across your learning setting, with your community, represents a profound shift – from isolation and autonomy to de-privatised practice. We work with you, implementing structures and processes to support you as you build your collaborations and become a successful networked learning community.
A development that focuses on the recognition of learning and achievement through a credentials framework – possibly the next stage in micro-credentialing.
