Recorded Webinars

Credit Interoperability and Blockchain Solutions - Webinar

In the first installment of our three part webinar series, we will discuss an important credit interoperability use case — reverse transfer, where postsecondary institutions facilitate data transactions between with other academic institutions to award credentials to students when they physically transfer. During this session, we will explore where in the implementation of this system occur implications for data privacy and security, how FERPA applies in these cases, and what questions were addressed by the institutions involved to ensure FERPA compliance.
