Six countries to develop resources for Blockchain training for professionals to use
UT Institute of Computer Science is a partner institution in EU co-financed Erasmus+ project BLISS that the past months have worked on developing the projects Open Education Resources.
The aim of “BLISS - Blockchain skills for ICT Professionals” is to develop a blockchain course for ICT professionals, updating their key competencies in response to the dynamic penetration of blockchain applications across numerous sectors of the EU economy.
The project will result in the training and assessment material to support learning on technical components and practical applications of blockchain technology. It will also include the trainer manual to guide the educators with the use of the BLISS training materials to prepare a course for the ICT professionals and students.
The BLISS project started in September 2017 and will conclude in March 2020. The project is coordinated by the University Lyon 1 Claude Bernard with the participation of the following EU organisations:
- University Lyon 1 Claude Bernard (France),
- Business Training SA (Belgium),
- AICA - Italian Association for Informatics and Automatic Calculation (Italy),
- EXELIA (Greece),
- University of Tartu (Estonia),
- TELESIG LTD (Bulgaria).
The University of Tartu is leading the development of the curriculum outline and the integration guidelines for vocational education and training (VET). The curriculum consists of four learning units, including (i) blockchain essentials, (ii) blockchain platforms, (iii) communication the business merits, challenges and implications of the blockchain technology, and (iv) practical design and development of blockchain applications.
The consortium will deliver the infrastructure for the Vocational Open Online Course, which will be freely accessible online to all interested parties. Please see the attached presentation for further details on the project results.
