Ahead of the upcoming Velocity Education Cluster event taking place on the 8th and 14th of November, you can watch this interview with one of our speakers, Mike Simmons, Strategic Partnerships and Business Development at AACRAO . He sat down with Ollie Henderson at the Velocity General Assembly 2023 in New York City.


Whether you’re…

✔️ An academic leader or administrator at an education institution
✔️ An LMS, SIS, Assessment Vendors or Credentialing Platforms
✔️ Someone advancing education towards digital credentials and micro-credentials…

You’re invited to a two-part event hosted by the Velocity Network Foundation’s Education Cluster, taking place on the 8th and 14th of November.

During these two one-hour sessions, you’ll learn how Velocity enables, at scale, fully interoperable, privacy-preserving digital credential records that have practical utility within the education and employment industries.

You’ll discover why the education community, including education institutions and bodies like Education Design Lab, AACRAO, Grand Valley State University and Western Governors University, view Velocity as a key solution to creating a unified approach to skills and education verification.

You’ll also hear the employer’s perspective from Cisive, HCA Healthcare and SAP, as they start to use verifiable credentials to get people in the right jobs at the right time.

And you’ll see a live demonstration of how someone can easily and quickly claim and share their credentials.
