This partnership is extending the scope of possibilities for higher education organizations to issue verified digital credentials to their learners.
TORONTO and PARIS, September 22nd, 2021 − Modern Campus and BCdiploma are announcing a brand-new partnership that aims to connect BCdiploma’s digital credential platform with Modern Campus Destiny One, the leading student management system for non-traditional education.
Verified and secure digital credentials for non-traditional education
BCdiploma works with more than a hundred higher education institutions in 18 countries, and provides secure diplomas, certificates, badges and micro-credentials. These digital credentials can be personalized for more authenticity. Furthermore, BCdiploma’s digital credentials are interexploitable with open standards, ensuring backward compatibility of its digital credentials with future governance standards.
With this new collaboration, leading providers of non-traditional education from colleges and universities will be able to provide verified and secure digital certificates for their courses. These digital certificates are stored on blockchain, meaning they are forgery-proof and can be customized at will in terms of content and appearance.
“By collaborating with BCdiploma, Modern Campus Destiny One will allow its clients to flexibly provide verified digital certificates, a product that is increasingly in demand from today’s students and employers”, explains Peter DeVries, Modern Campus’ CEO and COO. “Being responsive to our clients’ needs is truly what has positioned Modern Campus as an innovative leader in such a rapidly evolving education world, and we’re absolutely delighted to collaborate with a company as forward-thinking as BCdiploma.”
What are digital credentials ?
Digital micro-credentials are playing an increasingly important role in modern higher education. According to research by Modern Campus in collaboration with the University Professional and Continuing Education Association (UPCEA), 92% of education institution leaders say micro-certifications help keep their organization competitive, and 71% believe they will in fact help their institution achieve its financial and enrollment objectives.
Crucially, by storing digital certifications on the blockchain, BCdiploma ensures that students can access their certificates for life, and provides a relevant solution against the growing threat of diploma fraud. Indeed, according to a 2018 study, 68% of applicants’ resumes were found to be disingenuous, and 29% of them were related to deceit about earned certification.
“BCdiploma is looking forward to providing Modern Campus Destiny One’s clients with quick access to its range of services. We are sure they will make the most of our custom blockchain vouchers and digital badges that can be issued directly from their back office”, says Luc Jarry-Lacombe, BCdiploma’s co-founder and CEO. “In addition to unparalleled safety and durability, BCdiploma is an incredibly powerful lever for learning institutions’ branding efforts.”
