A student’s relationship with an educational institution extends far beyond graduation. Across a graduate’s post-collegiate career, proof of education becomes a critical component of one’s identity. The introduction of verifiable and personalized credentials is the foundation to creating a trusted framework to service the educational sector. At these intersections — academia and technology as well as formal education and ongoing skills development — is where the notion of identity in education can really take on a new form.


In this report, OWI and our partner, AU10TIX, take a deep dive into the role digital identity plays in the future of education.

The report includes

  • An analysis on the impact of COVID-19 on academic administrators to not only accelerate remote learning capabilities rapidly but also to serve students with individualized educational experiences
  • A deep dive into privacy and surveillance concerns while maintaining academic integrity in remote learning environments
  • An exploration into the role of trusted frameworks to service the educational sector and a future with interoperable identity attributes
  • A case study on  how identity can be leveraged for exam integrity
