Speakers include Byron Clift-Breland, the Chancellor of the San Jose Evergreen Community College and Sudhir Wadhwa, a professor at the University of Santa Clara and chief technology officer of Viridis Learning, a company that helps students identify their career paths and provides the tools to help them track and share their results. The agenda for the East Coast event will soon be announced; Speakers include Feng Hou, CIO and chief digital learning officer for Central New Mexico Community College and Loretta Early, CIO for George Washington University.
"No college or university offers training certificates, diplomas or degrees in any of the procedures – campus-led functions Therefore, everyone has waited years to clean up the processes that take days, such as approval of financial aid, # 39; articulation, evaluation, "said Michael Mathews, vice president of technology and innovation for Oral Roberts University. "If you're tired of the multi-day processes that hinder student success, blockchain is a technology needed to streamline interrupted processes."
