Australia’s RMIT To Use Credly For Blockchain Badges & Credentials For Students

Australia’s Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) has embarked on a plan to award student credentials on blockchain. This follows a new scheme implemented in collaboration with Credly.

According to the announcement by RMIT on Monday, students would start getting digital credentials based on blockchain. The project is a partnership initiative with Credly, a digital credential platform. The new form of credentials will enable students to utilize the blockchain technology to build a CV and to present their skills. It would also make it easy for students to share their credentials with social media networks such as LinkedIn.

Enhancing experience

According to Professor Belinda Tynan, the deputy vice chancellor for education at the institution,

“RMIT is an innovator, and with this initiative we’re exploring the latest application of this technology as part of our commitment to enhancing our students’ experience.”

RMIT observes the project as a significant use case for the Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT).

“RMIT is at the forefront of helping both students and employers leverage the potential of blockchain to fill long-standing skill and communication gaps….Our collaboration will provide students with the tools to better communicate industry-relevant skills and experiences into economic and life opportunities,” Tynan said.

However, only students who study Developing Blockchain Strategy Course at the institution will have their credentials available on Blockchain. RMIT will start giving out the digital credentials at the end of August 2018.

RMIT Blockchain Innovation Hub

Launched in September 2017, RMIT’s Blockchain Innovation Hub is probably the world’s first blockchain-oriented center for research, where students can study social science of the emerging technology. In the meantime, the university believes that soon the blockchain technology will transform global economy and business.

Commenting on the project, Jonathan Finkelstein, the founder and CEO of Credly said:

“This collaboration with a pioneering global partner provides an opportunity to test and refine the application of blockchain in unlocking the full potential of individuals—and organizations—to communicate and discover skills and competencies.”

Credly is a member of the American Council on Education (ACE), Destiny Solutions, American Association of Executives (ASAE), and Lumina Foundation to name but a few.
