SILICON VALLEY, October 20, 2020 – Beowulf Blockchain, the pioneer of the decentralized cloud network for communication services, announced that its market-leading technology stack is being widely utilized by a range of Vietnam’s leading universities with the mission to redefine academic excellence.
The global shift to remote work has created a significant rise in the use of video-based solutions for large-scale remote teaching and training activities. With this as the premise, members of the Vietnam National University Ho Chi Minh City league have jointly deployed the QUICKOM and Biploma platforms by Beowulf in an effort to provide unparalleled academic delivery, quality and transparency amid the coronavirus outbreak. These leading universities include the International University (IU), the University of Economics and Law (UEL), and the University of Social Sciences and Humanities Vietnam National University Ho Chi Minh City (USSH).
QUICKOM is uniquely positioned to provide a modern and highly collaborative, video-enabled communication experience for up to 5,000 participants across one single platform. Through its inclusive features, QUICKOM helps create a virtual learning environment that is engaging, interactive, and effective.
“By employing the QUICKOM platform into the learning system, USSH can simply and reliably provide remote, interactive and adaptive assessments, live streaming, and classroom learning sessions to thousands of students,” said Assoc. Prof. Dr. Ngo Thi Phuong Lan, Vice Director of the University of Social Sciences and Humanities.
Additionally, users can join a QUICKOM meeting easily by scanning a unique QR code with the camera on their smartphone without any complex accessories or new applications required.
“This partnership is a perfect fit with our mission of providing unparalleled education quality, and accessibility,” said Dr. Tran Tien Khoa, Director of the International University. “With QUICKOM, we have been able to adopt a more proactive approach to addressing the shortfalls of online education which are student engagement and motivation, and enabling education to surpass the physical boundaries of the classroom going onwards.”
With the goal of providing best-in-class quality for communication, Beowulf furnishes a suite of services built on blockchain that is supportive of the delivery of multiple solutions to help universities and educational institutions stay ahead.
Biploma by Beowulf is a newly-launched platform for the issuance and storage of academic records and credentials. By leveraging blockchain technology, such data is both tamper-proof and instantly-verifiable to the public, allowing employers to simplify the background verification process, with enhanced authentication and traceability. As a result, IU and UEL can substantially cut down the costs, time, and resources often related to cumbersome documentation processes and storage mechanisms.
“Blockchain technology has the potential to impact systems in a wide variety of industries, and the educational sphere is no exception. We are pleased to be working together with highly-accredited universities to utilize a new platform which can help effect real change in the education sector,” said Dr. William H. Nguyen, CEO and Founder of Beowulf Blockchain.
For students, this means they no longer need to contact the registrar’s office to have a verifiable degree sent to a prospective employer or for any other purpose, as all information can be easily accessible anywhere, anytime at their fingertips.
These academic credentials, coupled with detailed descriptions of skills acquired, are also ready to be shared instantly with potential employers, other schools, or anybody else, or published online on a wide range of sites, such as Moodle, WordPress, and Linkedin etc.
