In 2015 the MIT Media Lab started issuing digital certificates to groups within the Media Lab community. At the start of 2016 I worked with both MIT ODL and the Media Lab Learning Initiative to issue certificates for former and future attendees of the MIT Global Entrepreneurship Bootcamp. With a long term goal to provide digital, independently verifiable, certificates on the blockchain to those who take MIT’s MOOCs. By late 2016 close to 150 certificates had been issued from http://certificates-bootcamp.mit.edu/.
See the medium article from Philipp Schmidt for an overview of the project.
