Why should you use blockchain micro-credentials?
You are an institution, and you intend to deliver to your learner an online certificate allowing them to value a skill, an experience, a successful short training in connection with a business partner etc.
With so many options, you might want to consider the many inexpensive Open Badge platforms. But remember you probably want your online certificate to have the following features:
- Secure and authenticated, to be used in a career path;
- Durable, to be used throughout life and integrated into a complete career path;
- Complete, in terms of the data model, to accommodate external information and links describing the training or skill.
In other words, you are looking for a secure badge for professional use, also called Micro-Credential. BCdiploma combines the security and durability of blockchain with the expertise gained from our four-year partnership with eCampusOntario, the government agency gathering Canadian universities in Ontario. As we result, we provide you with micro-credentials, suitable for continuous education and lifelong skills recognition. Our platform is 1Edtech – IMS Global certified.
