The 24th International Conference on Interactive Collaborative Learning (ICL2021) took place as a hybrid event on September 22-24, 2021. This interdisciplinary conference is focused on the exchange of relevant trends and research results, as well as the presentation of practical experiences in Interactive Collaborative Learning and Engineering Pedagogy.
Alexander Mikroyannidis (The Open University, UK) presented a paper on the current status and latest results of the QualiChain pilot that he is leading in the area of lifelong learning. This pilot uses Blockchain technology in order to provide lifelong learners with transparent and immutable educational accreditation in the form of Smart Blockchain Badges. Additionally, within this pilot lifelong learners are provided with personalised recommendations that help them reach their personal and professional learning goals.
The conference proceedings will be published as ICL2021 Proceedings with Springer in the series Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems.
