This PhD project will investigate the potential of Blockchain technology on different aspects of education, for example accreditation, open badges, reputation building, ePortfolios and more. Blockchain is the technology behind crypto-currencies like Bitcoin, offering a publicly shared immutable ledger that can be used in many interesting and potentially revolutionary scenarios in education.
