Next generation education ecosystem

What does paying for a cup of coffee with your watch have to do with getting a master's degree? What impact will data self-sovereignty in connection with self-sovereign and distributed identities have on the educational ecosystem? How are educational experiences and services best packaged so self-sovereign learners and instructors can connect to them? How can employers and universities verify the authenticity of credits and degrees in a globalised society where fraud abounds? What if mutual benevolence simply cannot be assumed? And what does Einstein have to do with all of this? These questions and more will not be answered by this webinar, but hopefully we can think about how to even approach them.
