Role Of Blockchain In Education
Technically speaking, Blockchain in one form is a distributed database, spread across a large number of computers with no central controlling node. Each ‘block’ in the chain of computers is fully transparent but tamper-proof. A ‘block’ has a timestamp associated with it for recording transactions and offers indelible proof for all of the transactions and records. Blockchain can be easily implemented within individual educational institutions, groups of educational bodies, and both national and international educational institutions. As a matter of fact anyone wanting to securely store badges, credits, and qualifications – and make educational data that highly matters, available to others – could consider using blockchain technology.
