There has been a lot of coverage of the idea that blockchain will disrupt education. Martin Weller (for some reason) picks a paywalled article as his foil to make the case that blockchain will not be disruptive. "How will blockchain do it better? How will it overcome the problems that over a decade of eportfolio work has not quite managed to address?" Fair enough, but other (more open) work has addressed those questions. In the current post, D'Arcy Norman picks up on Weller's critique, finding the right path forward. "Will it disrupt higher ed? I don't think so. Will it transform how some services are run? Absolutely."
