Digital Credentials Consortium : verifiable credentials and decentralised identifiers

March 12 @ 14:45 - 15:00

Kerri LEMOIE

Director at the Digital Credentials C.onsortium

Kerri Lemoie is an expert in web technology, including decentralized technologies and standards such as verifiable credentials and decentralized identifiers. During her more than 20 years of experience, she has held multiple leadership positions, including senior management, CTO and advisory roles. As Chief Technology Officer at the Digital Credentials Consortium, she is leading the development of a trusted, distributed, and shared infrastructure that will become the standard for issuing, storing, displaying, and verifying digital college credentials. In this role, she also serves as co-chair of the W3C Verifiable Education Working Group and advises on several digital certification initiatives related to learning and employment. Kerri completed her Ph.D. at Fielding Graduate University in media psychology. His dissertation research focused on the technological adoption of self-sovereign digital identity.

The Digital Credentials Consortium was founded in 2018 by leading universities with expertise in the design of verifiable digital credentials. Together, we are designing an infrastructure for digital credentials of academic achievement.

Our mission is to create a trusted, distributed, and shared infrastructure that will become the standard for issuing, storing, displaying, and verifying academic credentials, digitally, as digital technology has a profound effect on the way we learn.

A wealth of materials is available to us at all times. We can easily connect with other learners, or communicate with our professors. Increasingly, technology is acting as personal guide that can support our individual interests and pathways. But the way we issue and manage academic credentials has not changed that much — and doesn’t take advantage of the possibilities of digital technology.

What would an academic degree look like if it was designed today? Or a professional certificate? Or a certificate for an online course? As the question of trusted verification and authentication of learning and credentials poses itself with renewed urgency we need to rethink the way we recognize and transact with academic credentials.
