Two Italian Learning Institutions Plan to Offer Ethereum Blockchain Diplomas
According to a local news report, two Italian high schools will start offering diplomas on Ethereum’s blockchain public technology. The digital diplomas will be easily shareable and unchangeable.
The two institutions to offer digital diplomas are the International high schools of Villa Flaminia, in Rome, and the Institute of Higher Education “M. Ciliberto- A. Lucifero”, in Crotone. The first institution will depend on the EY company’s blockchain-based system, while the latter partnered with Blockchain Italia.
How the Proposal is Beneficial
Maria Chiara, the head of Rome’s high school institute, believes that this project can eliminate information asymmetries with other bodies. She also stated that the project would enable educational institutions and companies to verify candidates’ qualifications.
Additionally, Sidori said the proposal would strengthen the existing teaching methods that involve continuous feedback between the teacher and student. She believes the project will standardize the process.
