The Future of Higher Ed Immersed in Web 3.0 - Ray Schroeder, Inside HIgher Ed

Not everyone agrees about what Web 3.0 will be, let alone how it will impact higher education, but the time to begin preparing is now. It does not yet exist, even in a single sandbox model. Yet it is hugely important for the future of higher education to prepare for, and lead, in creating the new platform. The log-ins and authentications for most every site will be long gone. Websites, as we know them now, will also be gone. Artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (XR), nonfungible tokens (NFTs) and decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs) will run on a blockchain backbone that will enable privacy, security, smart contracts and a host of relationships that are not possible today.
