“We envision a world in which the
awarding and validation of
qualifications no longer occur
exclusively under the management
of an education institution or an
employer and individual students,
teachers, and peers take more
ownership of the learning
experience and its outcomes (...)"
Prof. John Domingue,
Director of Open University’s
Knowledge Media Institute
A SYSTEMIC CHANGE AHEAD
BLOCKCHAIN IN EDUCATION EXPLAINED (1)
• The blockchain is a distributed database that provides an
unalterable, (semi-)public record of digital transactions.
• Each block aggregates a timestamped batch of transactions
to be included in the ledger – or rather, in the blockchain.
• Each block is identified by a cryptographic signature.
• These blocks are all back-linked; that is, they refer to the
signature of the previous block in the chain, and that chain
can be traced all the way back to the very first block created.
• As such, the blockchain contains an un-editable record of all
the transactions made.

  • 10. BLOCKCHAIN IN EDUCATION EXPLAINED (1) • The blockchain is a distributed database that provides an unalterable, (semi-)public record of digital transactions. • Each block aggregates a timestamped batch of transactions to be included in the ledger – or rather, in the blockchain. • Each block is identified by a cryptographic signature. • These blocks are all back-linked; that is, they refer to the signature of the previous block in the chain, and that chain can be traced all the way back to the very first block created. • As such, the blockchain contains an un-editable record of all the transactions made.
