Abstract

This paper presents a pilot case study of the QualiChain project, aiming at supporting lifelong learning through the combined use of Smart Badges and personalised recommendations. The pilot case study uses Blockchain technology as a means to decentralise lifelong learning and provide lifelong learners with transparent and immutable educational accreditation. At the same time, lifelong learners are provided with personalised recommendations that help them reach their personal and professional learning goals.
