The Catalyzing Impact of Blockchain Technology on Higher Education: Student-Centricity at Every Level

What possibilities could we imagine if HEIs committed to putting data on a distributed ledger technology (DLT) platform? Can we imagine a distributed ledger across the HEI enterprise to include the registrar, bursar, provost, human resources, purchasing and continuing education divisions (just to name a few) who can all share in the stewardship of a student’s blockchain? Some intermediary progress toward leveraging DLT would enable registrar-like offices to be the stewards of that portion of the chain, with distribution of credentials in ways universities never could have imagined. It remains to be seen what type of Trusted Third Party (TTP) providers may become “owners” or clearinghouse providers so that access is permitted to construct and distribute in whole or segments, or even provide access to employers, graduate schools, professional certifying bodies, etc.
