SEOUL, South Korea, Nov. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Dain Leaders (http://www.dainleaders.com/), a Blockchain edutech specialist, has announced that they have supported the proof of concept (PoC) of Blockchain for international student matching platform to ensure the credibility of application forms and manage students’ history systematically.
The ‘proof of concept (PoC)’ is a project sponsored by the Ministry of Science and ICT and the National IT Industry Promotion Agency (NIPA) and its purpose was to prevent forgery and alteration of documents required for the admissions of international students and reduce the amount of work required to verify authenticity for the credibility of admissions process. The underlying technology is the Blockchain testing technology.
Focusing on the untact business that has become popular due to COVID19, Dain Leaders expects that it would serve as a new platform to bring some of the manual processes of the admissions procedure into the online systems.
There currently are about 160,000 international students from 180 countries taking degree programs and language training courses at colleges in Korea. As more international students are coming to Korea every year, cases of applicants submitting fraudulent documents for illegal employment are also growing. Therefore, it is difficult for the colleges and other educational institutions to verify the authenticity of documents that have been forged so elaborately.
Fortunately, the integrated digital tracking platform for international students based on Blockchain makes it easy to review the documents to enhance the credibility of admissions procedure. The procedure compares the original copies of documents recorded onto the Blockchain in hash value to the files requested by colleges and other educational institutions to ensure alignment.
“The proof of concept (PoC) ensures the credibility of documents submitted by international students and tracks them systematically,” said President Moo Ho Lim of Dain Leaders. “Even after the project, it will continue to be improved with the feedback of diverse users, including colleges, educational institutions, international students, study abroad agencies, and more.”
