Applying the Blockchain Revolution to Higher Education
I came across the following post; https://er.educause.edu/articles/2017/3/the-blockchain-revolution-and-higher-education
I thought it a good addition to the community.
The blockchain provides a rich, secure, and transparent platform on which to create a global network for higher learning. This Internet of value can help to reinvent higher education in a way the Internet of information alone could not.
The blockchain represents nothing less than the second generation of the Internet, and it holds the potential to disrupt money, business, government, and yes, higher education.
The opportunities for innovators in higher education fall into four categories:
- Identity and Student Records: How we identify students; protect their privacy; measure, record, and credential their accomplishments; and keep these records secure
- New Pedagogy: How we customize teaching to each student and create new models of learning
- Costs (Student Debt): How we value and fund education and reward students for the quality of their work
- The Meta-University: How we design entirely new models of higher education so that former MIT President Chuck Vest’s dream can become a reality1
The blockchain may help us change the relationships among colleges and universities and, in turn, their relationship to society.
