In Development: Digital Database of Academic Records

In development: a secure digital database of academic records, with the aim of reducing fraud. Looks like it’ll be multiple countries. “Universities are planning to build a secure digital database for employers to check job applicants’ academic records and check the growing incidence of credential fraud….The initiative, called the Digital Student Data Project, is also set to be expanded internationally with student academic records from over a dozen countries including the US, China, India, the UK, Canada and New Zealand likely to be able to be accessed.” I hope it really is secure.
