Blockchain Technologies

4 hours



The Blockchain Technologies course provides you with a solid understanding of the business issues surrounding the emergence of blockchain, explaining its value and general structure. It then describes applications that are currently using this technology and provides an insight into its potential. For those just starting out, it suggests existing frameworks and platforms where blockchain can run, and because blockchain is still in its infancy, where more information of this topic can be obtained. The last module covers the more technical aspects of blockchain, discussing the use of hashes, block content, and how blockchain data is created and distributed throughout the network.


This course is suitable for a wide range of people - from business managers to general IT workers, who need both an overview of blockchain capabilities and a technical view inside blockchain processing.




After completing this course, the student should be able to:

  • Describe basic blockchain structure and functionality
  • Identify existing and potential blockchain applications
  • Describe how hashes and blocks are used in the blockchain process
