EdSurge Live: A Town-Hall Style Video Forum

What if there was a talk show about edtech? We thought we’d try one, so we’re launching EdSurge Live, an experimental way to gather readers and experts via video chat to talk about key issues facing those exploring the future of higher education.

NEXT EPISODE: Getting Learning Science Into the College Classroom

Tuesday, November 27, 1pm PT/4pm ET

Bitcoin may be volatile, but a growing number of colleges are exploring how the technology behind cryptocurrencies could change the way students communicate their academic accomplishments to employers.

Even experts on the blockchain admit the technology can be hard to understand, and many still wonder whether shifting to the technology would be worth the effort.

So what are colleges already doing to experiment with blockchain? What do those early efforts tell us? And what are the risks?

We’ll be joined by:

Michael Matthews, chief information officer at Oral Roberts University and a frequent speaker on blockchain in higher education.

RSVP here.

Until then, watch highlights from past episodes below.
