Abstract

Currently the most concrete and promising blockchain use case for higher education: issuing credentials/degrees on the blockchain and making them available in a personal wallet ready to be shared. The current system of degree certification is simply not efficient and not particularly safe. Degrees are crucial "documents" which follow the entire life span of a student, hence security and privacy is important. A paper system is an easy subject to loss, even fraud. KU Leuven and SAP jointly worked on bringing this use case alive and have conducted a successful live proof-of-concept between KUL’s student information system (SAP SLcM) and the cloud based blockchain service and application from SAP. In this presentation we will talk about the POC (Proof of Concept), the details, the outcomes and the possible next steps.
