N2N on the Road: Blockchain in Education Conference in Tulsa, OK
On May 16th, 2018 N2N’s CEO and Founder Kiran Kodithala headed to Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma for The Blockchain Essentials for Education Conference.  Kiran was a featured speaker at the event where he presented “Blockchains and their Impact on Higher Education.”  Kiran discussed his vision on Blockchain’s impact on education and participated in the closing panel discussion of Short-term and Long-term views of Blockchain technologies.




The Blockchain in Education Conference enabled education professionals to understand how blockchain technology such as cryptocurrency, smart contracts, distributed databases, and public ledgers are, and will continue to transform higher education.

According to Oral Roberts AVP of Innovation and Technology, Michael L. Mathews, “We predict along with many other national thought leaders that Blockchain will have the greatest impact on campus operations and SIS/ERP systems over the next five years, and have little to on the transcript itself. The true value of Blockchain will come from the streamlining of all the processes that formerly produced the academic steps necessary to get transcripts and a diploma/degree. This will include the freedom of people from anywhere in the world the ability to digitally unlock academic content, in order to operate in a newly created ‘trusted’ ecosystem of academic and competency access. The Blockchain for education will ultimately become the Digital Vending Machine in the Cloud. The question will be … which institution was ahead of the curve to capture the digital credits assigned through a trusted Blockchain world.”


The collaboration within the conference included 30 Universities, the Oklahoma Board of Regents CIO, the President of TouchNet, Blockchain companies, and executive leaders from N2N, Carousel Industries, Salesforce, Workday, Oracle, Ellucian, JobZology, OneNet, TrustedKey, 3Dream Studios, and many more.
