The college transcript of the future—and the processes holding it back

Posted on April 24th, 2017

College transcripts need to better reflect each learner’s unique path argues Brian Peddle, founder and CEO of Motivis Learning. According to Peddle, an ideal transcript should provide insight into a learner’s experiences, including knowledge acquired and applied, skills mastered and demonstrated, and projects completed. He points to technologies that could support this, such as blockchain, which provides a secure data record that learners can use throughout their educational experiences. More detailed and customizable transcripts would also allow employers to assess job applicants more accurately, based on demonstrated skills.
