eLearning statistics from Statista reveal that the global eLearning market is expected to grow over $240 Billion by the end of 2022.
This statistic does not come as a surprise, since online learning has experienced rapid growth in the last two years. Its pros and cons are many-fold, from improved teaching techniques that use gamification and interactive videos to lack of accreditation and low quality of programmes.
Vital fact: pursuing a course from an institute that has no accreditation, is increasingly seen as worthless, in terms of learning actual work skills. It also makes finding employment difficult.
So, how can institutes improve their positioning and brand reputation?
We have a simple answer. Start issuing instantly, verifiable digital certificates on the blockchain.
Digital certificates will act as proof of your training and your graduates’ skill levels. It will boost your institute’s reputation. Additionally, digitising your certificates on blockchain will save you time, money and the hassle of certificate verification in the long run.
What exactly is a digital certificate and why would you want one?
Before we tell you what a digital certificate is, let us tell you what it is not. It is not a:
- PDF (Portable Document Format)
- Scanned document saved on the cloud
- Digital version of a document with an e-signature
A digital certificate is a document that is issued on the blockchain. It has a QR code and a link that can be used to verify its authenticity immediately. It is tamper-proof, only the institute issuing the digital certificate has the authority to revoke or modify it. And finally, the students who receive digital certificates can share with recruiters or on their social media profiles without having to worry about it being manipulated.
In this way, your institute can stand out and navigate a sea of online course providers.
Here is proof. The Automotive Skills Development Council (ASDC), is taking advantage of digital certificates to recognise and track their student’s performance and progress.
