Why Universities should issue digital certificates
Maintaining printed paper records of students’ academic credentials has fast become outmoded. The digital revolution has made new things possible.
And it’s all faster, easier, and on a large scale. Speed and efficiency are all yours, at the click of a button.
Universities that issue digital certificates can jump on the technology bandwagon to go digital with their student’s academic credentials.
This will not only eliminate the laborious efforts of their administrative staff who must hand over printed certificates to every student as and when required, but a digital certificate is 100% secured when the technology being used is right – branding the university and its students as trustworthy among potential employers and other stakeholders.
Blockchain digital certificates
When a digital certification company uses blockchain technology it thwarts any attempt by a hacker to alter a student’s certificate – your certificate is 100 per cent safe and secure as your jewellery in a bank locker.
Blockchain – a digital ledger of transactions is maintained by a network of computers, and every transaction is independently verified by a peer-to-peer computer network, time-stamped and added to a growing chain of data. Once the data is recorded, your credentials cannot be tampered with. And, you have some great advantages over your competitors who haven’t yet invested in blockchain-backed digital certificates.
All students’ records will be contained in a trustworthy format as the blockchain ledger maintains a permanent, indelible, and unalterable history of transactions – a key feature of blockchain.
Resilience and Integrity
With blockchain, you don’t need the intervention of a third person acting as a custodian of your academic credentials. Blockchain operates as a decentralized network contrary to a central server with a single point of failure. The technology allows individuals to own their digital identity and carry it across platforms, sharing only what is needed and when, and protecting the privacy of the process.
An identity management system linked with blockchain -where the user is in full control of his/her personally identifiable information – is highly secure for identity holders – the technology disallows any transaction without the explicit consent of the identity holder.
High Speed and Efficiency
Blockchain automates processes at high speed for efficiency in its unique data storage capacity to provide a super-efficient process with trust, transparency, and immutability.
You cannot cheat the network with blockchain, because it records data in an impenetrable manner. Using encryption mechanisms stores information in a way that any changes made will be recorded. It also makes the data available to everyone at any time so that all transactions are transparent.
Traceability And Audit.
With blockchain, you can trace, track, and identify fake transactions right from the starting point of deceit.
It also facilitates audit where an employer or any other stakeholder, using a QR code scan the certificate to identify its authenticity.
