FUJITSU NEWS: Fujitsu and Sony Global Education Initiate Blockchain Field Trials for Course Records and Transcript Management

Sony Global Education, Inc., Fujitsu Limited, and Fujitsu Research Institute announced that as of February 27, they have initiated a field trial to evaluate the usefulness of blockchain technology1 in the management of course records and grade data. The trial will be conducted in collaboration with Human Academy Co., Ltd., an educational institution that accepts and teaches foreign students.

In this field trial, students who hope to study abroad in Japan will take a course ("Nihongo Dojo") aimed at the Nihongo Kentei language proficiency test created by EDVEC Inc. Students enrolled in the course will make use of Fujitsu's Fisdom2 digital learning platform, and the learning data of each student, including study logs and grade information, will be stored and managed as unfalsifiable data on a blockchain, in the form of a certificate. Educational institutions will be afforded a firm grasp of the prospective student's language ability by referring to the highly reliable learning data stored in the blockchain when checking the validity of the educational certificate submitted by the prospective student. The implementation of this system will make it possible for learning institutions to support diverse ways of learning more effectively.

The three companies will also consider an initiative to evaluate learning attitudes and processes through a more multifaceted analysis of the study logs and grade information collected during the trial.

For detailed information, please see the full announcement:
