Stanford University Model

The pilot student record program at Stanford University, the “certified electronic certificate program,” aims to arm students with more consumable information about the path they took to get their credentials. The first page of the certificate contains the student’s name, the name of the program, and the signatories. The second page explains the validations. To validate the credentials, the user enters a serial number in an encrypted, Stanford-hosted domain to view: 1) Who was given the award, 2) What the program was, and 3) The entire contents of the program expressed as learning outcomes.
