Central New Mexico Community College will soon have the ability to store students’ academic records on the blockchain in a way that is nearly impossible to counterfeit. This way students will have the ability to send their transcripts to employers without having to involve the college registrar. This project is part of IBM’s initiative called the “Learning Credential Network”, intended to streamline hiring processes with verifiable certificates from training programs and skill boot camps, along with conventional degrees. A recent IBM study found that over 120 million workers in large economies may have to retrain within three years due to AI automation. Big Blue, along with an education consortium of US-based institutions, hopes to solve this by supporting a diverse range of learning credentials on a blockchain platform.
