Digital Transformation for Student Data Portability Through Internet of Education (IoE)

As COVID-19 upends lives and livelihoods worldwide, flexible and diversified learning is becoming the new normal for university teaching and learning. As a result, the rapid growth of online learning is challenging the relevance of traditional higher education systems. Over the challenges, the Tokyo Convention enables individuals to have the right to have their studies and qualifications recognized and/or assessed fairly and transparently, including online and blended learning. Learning outcomes should therefore be the focus of attention across the traditional and the new normal of online education when it comes to ensuring fair recognition and facilitating mobility and employability.

This panel explores the development of viable Transpacific collaboration for executing the responsibilities of the Tokyo Convention through digitalising student data portability and evolving it through the Internet of Education (IoE), a vision where every human on earth has access to quality education and economic opportunities. In this context, the panel shares experiences, insights, and future roadmap of the three Transpacific regions’ initiatives of digitising learning outcome, including online and blended learning:

  • Australia and New Zealand (My eQuals and the Australian National Credential Platform)
  • Canada (the ARUCC | Credential Wallet)
  • Japan (Japan initiative led by RECSIE (Research Consortium for Sustainable International Education))

Throughout the three regions, the panel seeks international interoperability and convergence in technology, best practice, and governance through the Internet of Education (IoE) stage of digital transformation in higher education institutions.
