Using Atala PRISM built on top of the Cardano blockchain, a national attainment recording system will be created by IOG to enable the Ministry of Education to monitor school performance, review grades, and promote nationwide education.

In the video, the director of African operations at IOG, John O’Connor, spoke expressly on the progress of the partnership and other related developments.

Speaking on the project, he said the software company had been working diligently and tirelessly with the Ethiopian government to integrate the national attainment recording system with national identity systems and national data protection laws.

John O’Connor said the company has been working with the government since last month to train students, schoolmasters, mistresses, and teachers on how to use the platform.

He pointed out that the training should complete this month to give room for the rollout of the platform for students over the next two months. The firm aims to fully onboard 1 to 2 million students, which is still within the agreement made in the partnership.
