MIT Graduates to Receive Their Diplomas on a Blockchain Wallet

MIT has always been innovative in their education and technology, and their recent decisions to give students access to their academic records is just another demonstration of that. The Learning Machine, which is a software company out of Cambridge, is the cause of the change, which has joined MIT’s Media Lab and Registrar’s Office. In addition to the access to their academic records, the university also lets students store and share diplomas.

The pilot program has already shown to be successful, and new graduates will receive a digital wallet, according to the MIT Technology Review. The director of the media lab, Philipp Schmidt, said, “I don’t believe in one central body having ownership over the digital record of people’s learning.”

Essentially, this access will help students to get information about their credentials at a moment’s notice, which will give potential employers the verification they need to hire them quickly. Any new graduate only has to download the app to get access to the diploma. The CEO of Learning Machine, Chris Jagers, had the following to say on the new program. “Before graduation, MIT sends the students an invite email, which says, ‘Hey go download the Blockcerts Wallet App, accept the passphrase, and add MIT as an issuer.’ When MIT issues the diplomas, students get an email with a digital file, which they can then import into the app.”
