Keywords: blockchain, education, edtech, open source technology, universities, career development, careers registration
Abstract: According to a recent report by the European Commission, blockchain technologies may "disrupt institutional norms in the field of education and empower learners" in line with the needs of Industry 4.0. The Commission proposes eight scenarios for the application of distributed ledger technology (DLT) in an educational context, based on the current state of technology development. This paper looks into the theoretical and practical opportunities for OS.UNIVERSITY as a pioneering initiative in the field to be of benefit to the national “Careers Registration” project in the U.K. higher education system for collection and analysis of student career-planning data. OS.UNIVERSITY aims to create a distributed platform on the blockchain that turns the potentially disruptive DLT scenarios into real-life opportunities for modernization of Academia, enablement of businesses, and empowerment of learners.
