In May 2020, Takis Diakoumis (CTO, Digitary) and James Murray-Beckman (COO, Digitary) joined Evernym for a discussion on how universities and other higher education institutions can benefit from verifiable credential technology.
Here’s what was covered:
- An overview of what self-sovereign identity (SSI) means for higher education, and how it gives control and mobility to students
- How (micro-)credentials can help students instantly prove their educational achievements to prospective employers, financial institutions, and other universities
- The effects of COVID-19 on higher education, and SSI's role in building a trusted online learning infrastructure
- A first-look at Digitary's new credential issuing platform
