Crypto College: Coursera And INSEAD Launch Online Blockchain Class

280
As the cryptocurrency industry matures, demand for expertise on blockchain will continue to climb. To fill that need, online education institute Coursera is launching a specialized curriculum, in collaboration with business academy INSEAD, to help educate entrepreneurs in the new technology.
Dubbed “Blockchain Revolution for the Enterprise,” the new curriculum aims to bring advanced level education and skill sets to mid-career professionals looking to implement blockchain into their businesses, or to start their own blockchain centered project.
The curriculum joins other blockchain focused courses offered by leading education institutes including:
  • Oxford University
  • Princeton University
  • MIT
  • Cornell University
  • The University of California, Berkeley
  • Duke University
The four-course Specialization will be taught by tech entrepreneur and founder of the Blockchain Research Institute, Don Tapscott. Tapscott, who has authored books on technological revolutions since the 1980’s, sees the next innovative horizon in blockchain. As such, his organization has launched over 80 projects on research, development, application, and implementation of blockchain technologies since its inception.
In a press release, Tapscott cites education as a key factor in the mass adaptation of blockchain into mainstream society. Says Tapscott:
“Educating leaders is one of the keys to accelerating the widespread adoption of blockchain. Working with INSEAD and Coursera, we’ve been able to develop the world’s definitive online course for blockchain in business”
These are important elements in the mainstream adoption of blockchain and cryptocurrency, education is a big part of that. Creating knowledge, increasing comfort and taking a literal peek behind the curtain is important for having adoption. Adoption in business and by the public, along with government support, are the pivotal points that will determine whether or not and how long it will realistically take for adoption to happen. Seeing these types of programs begin to pop up shows us that adoption and acceptance is starting to happen.
