All members of KMi's blockchain group visited Jisc's London offices yesterday for a workshop on the use of blockchain technology in higher education, specifically in tracking a student's learning history. After a presentation by department director John Domingue, demonstrations of some of our research 'Ðapps' were given by Michelle Bachler (reputation), Kevin Quick (course registration) and Chris Valentine (ePortfolio). Later, Keerthi Thomas and Allan Third joined breakout sessions discussing particular areas of interest including proof of identity, badges, authentication and micro-accreditation.

Jisc have recently set up a server as part of a new Ethereum blockchain that will shortly expand to include a number of other leading UK universities.
