@Ignatia Webs: #Blockchain in #learning exploring for #validation of lifelonglearning #... - 0 views

  •  
    "What I am looking for is a stackable certification solution, which blockchain for learning or education can provide. This stackable way of organising or linking learning could enable a validated, personalized certification procedure covering both formal learning (e.g. certification, degrees, micro-credits) and informal learning (e.g. badges, skills, experiences). Practically: each learner has a learning wallet or portfolio, and you - as a learner - can add each learning step as you 'earn' it and you are issued a certificate/badge of what you learned by a learning authority/individual/group).  "

The computer's sensing, processing, and communicating capabilities mean it could effectively turn every item in the supply chain into an Internet of Things device, producing highly granular supply chain data that could streamline business operations. But more importantly, the computer could be a critical element of IBM's efforts to apply blockchain technology to the supply chain."

    ""I thought it was an opportunity for the university to take on a new field and maybe build a franchise in this area," said David Yermack, a finance professor at New York University's Stern School of Business, of his decision to offer a digital-currency class in 2014. Today, he says, "the thing has really taken on a life of its own.""

How Blockchain Will Disrupt the Higher Education Transcript - 2 views

    "In essence, it is a just a distributed ledger to record transactions. What makes it special is that it is durable, time-stamped, transparent and decentralized. Those characteristics are equally useful for managing financial transactions as for a system of reputation. In fact, you can think of reputation as a type of currency for social capital, rather than financial capital."
