Blockdegree Becomes Licensed Educational Body in Singapore
Blockdegree, the education platform powered by XinFin Fintech, has “received in-principle accreditation from SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG), a statutory body under Singapore’s Ministry of Education,” according to a press release from the group.
“Widening its repertoire of educational services, Blockdegree will now provide a curated list of free online course modules, covering topics of contemporary relevance, such as Blockchain, Cloud Computing, Artificial Intelligence, and so on,” it continues.
These courses are for both users new to the industry and experts, developers, and more. “In doing so, the platform is building a robust talent pipeline to help the industry meet its employment needs in the future.”
Speaking on the matter is Ms. Wan Wei, the Senior Lecturer at Blockdegree, who said:
“The platform is aligned with Singapore’s SkillsFuture movement. Through our services, we encourage the people of Singapore to learn and experiment with future-ready skills like Blockchain, Cloud Computing, Artificial Intelligence, and so on. Once we have the regulatory approvals for the course material, learners will be able to utilise their SkillsFuture credits and grants from other programs on Blockdegree. As such, the initiative is aimed to empower the nation’s people to prepare themselves for a post-COVID-19 digital economy. We also invite educational institutions and government bodies to start using the platform to issue and store tamper-proof digital certificates using XinFin’s distributed ledger technology and associated solutions.”
