Blockchain: Turning Academic Credentials Problems Into Opportunity
Presenter: Leon Katsnelson, Director & CTO, Emerging Technologies, IBM Analytics Platform
Thursday, January 18, 2017 – 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. CT
Academic credentials fraud is more rampant than ever. From diploma mills, corrupt school administrators, and “certificate artists”, academic credentials are under assault destroying credibility of the credentials and the institutions that issue them and devaluing the effort of legitimate learners. Popularity of online learning and micro credentials only amplifies the problem. In addition, the costs of issuing, verifying and safekeeping credentials have skyrocketed. Blockchain provides not only an elegant technological solution to the problems of fraud and escalating costs but also a real opportunity to connect skills with employment, to help national and local governments with economic development and attracting investment and to help learning institutions become really effective at lifelong learning that spans geographic boundaries.
