Oral Roberts University, which recently held a conference to educate colleges and universities about blockchain, will be co-hosting two new one-day blockchain events, one on the east coast and the other on the west coast, to reach educators and IT leaders in both higher education and K-12. Both events are offering discounts to attendees from educational institutions.
The Microsoft Sunnyvale campus will host the “West” edition of “Blockchain in Education” on Oct. 12; and the University of the District of Columbia Van Ness Campus will host the “East” version on Nov. 13. Participants will receive blockchain certificates produced by ORU as well as paper-based certificates of attendance.
“No college or university offers any training certificates, diplomas or degrees in any of the process-driven functions on campus. Therefore, everybody has been waiting for years to clean up the processes that takes days, such as financial aid approval, articulation, assessment,” said Michael Mathews, vice president of technology and innovation for Oral Roberts University. “If you’re tired of multi-day processes hindering student success, blockchain is a necessary technology to streamline broken processes.”
