Blockchain and Open Badges in Higher Education & Research

Blockchain and Open Badges in Higher Education & Research

On March 22nd, 2016, I presented on the Open Badges in Higher Ed working group call. The purpose of the call was to speak about some of my thinking about blockchain technologies and potential futures in research and development.

In the discussion I defined blockchain and related technologies. I also discussed the work conducted up to that point in the BadgeChain initiative. I identified probing questions that I still have. Finally, I concluded by asking members of the higher ed and research community to join us as we explore these spaces.

The slide deck for the chat is available here and embedded below.

The audio recording and the EtherPad for the meeting captures the discussion and questions from the assembled group.

In the discussion, I referenced the following posts:
