Between the Chapters #24: beyond the blockchain buzz with @dkernohan
Play • 40 min

For this Between the Chapter episode, Laura chats with David Kernohan about the blockchain and other odd things happening around the year 2017: Chapter 24. This episode will not explain what the blockchain is, but take a broad perspective about the times, questioning trust, and changing of systems. Spoiler Alert: We don’t want to crush your hopes and dreams about blockchains, but there's no real lasting impact for it in higher ed. 


  • How can we create a set of ground rules that share trust and expertise in learning, credentials, and more? Will blockchain help?
  • How are you thinking about long term storage of digital artifacts, projects, and initiatives?
  • How do we decide which digital artifacts are given resources, time and money, to preserve these learning objects?
