& # 39; Education Dive: Higher Ed & # 39; is a leading publisher in the education sector. They called CNM "Innovator of the Year" for the use of blockchain technology to issue digital diplomas to students.
In August, the CNM made digital diplomas accessible to all college graduates.
The college said that with digital credentials, students should never worry about losing the paper certificate or being stolen.
CNM does not stop at digital diplomas.
The school has launched a pilot program that will allow students to earn "micro-credentials" for skills that integrate the knowledge gained from degree programs and certificates.
"For example, students who demonstrate they have learned" transversal skills "such as problem solving, oral communication or intercultural fluency will receive digital badges that are recorded on the blockchain, along with their diplomas and transcripts," said CNM.
In addition, CNM received funding in 2018 from the New Mexico Attorney General's Office for the development of blockchain, such as the formation of blockchain coding instructors and the construction of blockchain services available to government agencies.
