Blockchain for Executives
(Education Industry)

Learn the basic concepts of blockchain, its strategic impact on the education industry and why it matters!

How does Blockchain Technology Impact the Education Industry?

As the power of online and distance-learning grows, so does the need for an independent way of verifying students’ transcripts and educational records. 

A blockchain-based system could serve almost as a notary for educational records, creating a way for employers and other educational institutions to access secure records and transcripts. It could also help in facilitating collaboration between universities and other large institutions. 

One of the biggest problems in academia is the security, identity, and tracking of student records. 

Blockchain can be implemented to fix all of these issues, with additional benefits to the education industry also.

This short course is for executives in the education industry ready to understand blockchain technology and explore its potential

Copyright protection and publishing

By using blockchain, we can secure  intellectual property, and demonstrate the original, real owner of the copyright. The fact that data stored on a  blockchain can’t be tampered with, means it’s an awesome means of protecting copyright.

 

Trusted certification and credentials

The issue of fake reviews, false certifications, ‘bought’ credentials, and even inauthentic referrals, is huge. Using blockchain technology, we can avoid most of these problems, so that falsified records in educational institutions will be a thing of the past.

Reducing energy and resources

Currently we consume and waste an enormous amount of energy.  We also spend a lot of time and resources trying and reduce that usage. Blockchain provides one means of reducing that  energy consumption across many industries. In the education industry for example, a lot of paperwork, bureaucracy, and unnecessary antiquated systems can be automated., making administrative tasks more efficient and effective.

“Further development of the technology in the educational field should be considered as a shared competence of the market and of public authorities, to ensure an appropriate balance of private sector innovation coupled with safeguard of the public interest.”

How will blockchain impact the “traditional” practice of law?

If you represent clients in blockchain-affected industries, you become an even greater resource as trusted adviser by understanding blockchain within the context of your client’s business.

Being so nascent, blockchain presents an incredible (unique, even) opportunity for lawyers to position themselves as trusted strategic advisors to clients navigating the myriad legal, regulatory, and logistical webs surrounding the technology and its applications. A lawyer serving the music industry, for example, makes herself an invaluable part of a client’s core team if she understands blockchain, how it affects her client, and how her client can capitalize on the technology.

Why? Because the lawyer as trusted advisor is situated differently than others most likely to have blockchain savvy (e.g. IT advisors). Yes, IT knows the technology (maybe). But only the lawyer can extrapolate from the technological understanding to what this really means for a client operating in a law- and regulation-bound environment.

Here are a few industry-specific examples of how lawyers can become trusted blockchain advisors to clients, within the context of an existing practice:

  • Finance
  • Insurance
  • Entertainment
  • The Smart Contract Firm
  • The Smart Contract Mediator
  • The Smart Title Company
  • The Ledger Lawyer: Blockchain Law and Policy Advisor
  • Educator
Educate and Prepare
  • Face-to-face
  • Corporate in-house training
  • Course Duration: 2 hours

Blockchain is an emerging technology that’s growing rapidly and will integrate with other technologies such as artificial intelligence and IoT. Up-skilling yourself in emerging technologies will increase your chances of career opportunities in the future. McKinsey Global Institute predicts 800 million jobs will be lost by 2030 as technology advances and the world gets more and more automated.
