Over the past year, AMSI has been testing and iterating a Blockchain based solution for issuing digital academic credentials to our students and graduates.
Today, we are proud to announce that AMSI Schools, Al Mawakeb and ISAS, are the first K-12 schools in the world to launch digital academic records for our students and graduates on the Blockchain. Class of 2019 will be the first class to have their school diplomas issued digitally on the Blockchain – in addition to the traditional ones. This ambitious project is aligned with the vision of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum to make Dubai the first city fully powered by Blockchain by 2020 (Dubai Blockchain Strategy 2020) and the UAE Blockchain Strategy 2021.
How does it work?
This solution includes a series of tools that enable our schools in Dubai to securely issue digital academic credentials, allow students to store and share them, and give recipients the ability to instantly verify them.
- School issues and shares digital diploma with student
- Student keeps copy of digital diploma and shares it with other school or university
- University verifies the authenticity of diploma on the AMSI Verification portal verification.amsi.ae
This process significantly reduces the processing time and costs, and provides value to all stakeholders.
How will our graduates benefit?
Our graduates will be fully in control of the academic records they request and receive. The complexity of the administrative processes will be decreased. Records may be requested online, released in real time, and shared as deemed necessary instantly without any 3rd party’s involvement. Recipients from other schools or universities will be able to verify the authenticity of those credentials on our dedicated verification portal.
This system will reduce the processing time, cost, and significantly increase authenticity and trust.
