CMU cites environmental and security benefits to the new credentialing procedure
California Metropolitan University (CMU) announced that all awards would use verifiable blockchain as a digital credential beginning June 2022. CMU is joining the initiative to utilize blockchain technology for their course completion documentation.
California Metropolitan University Co-Founder & Vice President, International Sailesraj Bala Murali said “By embracing blockchain technology, we can ensure that our awards will remain immutable and instantly verifiable from anywhere globally.”
CMU’s use of blockchain technology provides an additional benefit to its students. Awards issued on blockchain technology are easily verifiable by anyone clicking on a verification link or scanning a QR code. The technology allows those who have completed a course to access their records immediately. Secondly, the blockchain eliminates the need for paper products as paper files can be lost, destroyed, or stolen. In addition, the blockchain significantly decreases the ability to promote forged certificates as they are not verifiable in the same way as an original award. Lastly, digital credentials are shareable as often as the student needs to in all formats (social networks and professional settings). The authenticity of blockchain technology makes it a significant enhancement for students at CMU.
CMU offers its courses to the membership of TEFL International only. The classes are available online and are self-study, allowing students to learn at their own pace.
