How the Blockchain
can shape the future
of education
Dr. Alexander Mikroyannidis
The Open University, UK
Agenda
• Introduction
• Group activity
• Discussion
• Closing
Motivation
The centralised education model is no longer sustainable:
– Learning happens increasingly outside the brick-and-mortar
lecture halls of schools, colleges, and universities on online
platforms, within communities of like-minded individuals, or by
contributing to projects and initiatives in the real-world.
– Learning is far more international than it used to be: key
education players open campuses abroad, while students travel
to different countries to improve their employability prospects.
– In the networked, digitally empowered world of the 21st century,
education providers often do not have remit or the means and
capacity to cover the range of activities learners engage with,
which attest their achievements, knowledge, and skills.
Vision
We envision an education model in which the
awarding and validation of qualifications no longer
occur exclusively under the management of an
education institution or an employer.
Individual students, teachers, and peers take more
ownership of the learning experience and its
outcomes without compromising on safety, security,
and accessibility.

What is a blockchain?
Scenario #1: Educational
reputation
• Transactions of educational reputation rather than money.
• An amount of reputation is assigned to institutions and
individuals, based on their status. This could be related to
their standing in international league tables or to significant
achievements.
• They can then award small amounts of this reputational
currency to students who graduate, or colleagues whose
work they value.
• The record is public, so anyone can see how a person
gained educational reputation, and the rules for adding new
value are agreed by consensus.

Prototype demo
Scenario #2: Personalised
recommendations
• Lifelong learners earn Smart Badges
stored on the Blockchain, thus
ensuring the validity of the awarded
accreditation and eliminating the risk
of fabricated qualifications.
• Smart Badges include data about the
key skills that learners have
acquired.
• Learners receive personalised
recommendations about job offers
that match their skills. They also
receive recommendations about what
to study next.

Next steps
• We are currently implementing the
core components of this ecosystem,
using the Ethereum blockchain
platform.
• We are also working on learning
scenarios and applications on real-life
educational platforms, for example by
developing a Moodle plugin for
blockchain badges.
QualiChain
• New H2020 project (started
January 2019)
• Decentralised Verification
and Management of
Qualifications for:
– Learner Empowerment
– Education Reengineering
– Public Sector
Transformation

How the Blockchain can shape the future of education

  • 1. How the Blockchain can shape the future of education Dr. Alexander Mikroyannidis The Open University, UK
  • 2. Agenda • Introduction • Group activity • Discussion • Closing
  • 3. Motivation The centralised education model is no longer sustainable: – Learning happens increasingly outside the brick-and-mortar lecture halls of schools, colleges, and universities on online platforms, within communities of like-minded individuals, or by contributing to projects and initiatives in the real-world. – Learning is far more international than it used to be: key education players open campuses abroad, while students travel to different countries to improve their employability prospects. – In the networked, digitally empowered world of the 21st century, education providers often do not have remit or the means and capacity to cover the range of activities learners engage with, which attest their achievements, knowledge, and skills.
  • 4. Vision We envision an education model in which the awarding and validation of qualifications no longer occur exclusively under the management of an education institution or an employer. Individual students, teachers, and peers take more ownership of the learning experience and its outcomes without compromising on safety, security, and accessibility.
  • 5.
  • 7. Scenario #1: Educational reputation • Transactions of educational reputation rather than money. • An amount of reputation is assigned to institutions and individuals, based on their status. This could be related to their standing in international league tables or to significant achievements. • They can then award small amounts of this reputational currency to students who graduate, or colleagues whose work they value. • The record is public, so anyone can see how a person gained educational reputation, and the rules for adding new value are agreed by consensus.
  • 8. Movies available at: http://blockchain.open.ac.uk Prototype demo
  • 9. Scenario #2: Personalised recommendations • Lifelong learners earn Smart Badges stored on the Blockchain, thus ensuring the validity of the awarded accreditation and eliminating the risk of fabricated qualifications. • Smart Badges include data about the key skills that learners have acquired. • Learners receive personalised recommendations about job offers that match their skills. They also receive recommendations about what to study next.

  • 10. Prototype demo Movies available at: http://blockchain.open.ac.uk
  • 12. Group activity Build your learning scenario: http://bit.ly/Blockchain-JTELSS19
  • 13. Next steps • We are currently implementing the core components of this ecosystem, using the Ethereum blockchain platform. • We are also working on learning scenarios and applications on real-life educational platforms, for example by developing a Moodle plugin for blockchain badges.
  • 14. QualiChain • New H2020 project (started January 2019) • Decentralised Verification and Management of Qualifications for: – Learner Empowerment – Education Reengineering – Public Sector Transformation

Editor's Notes

  1. Learners create single authored or shared artefacts with their peers. At the same time, learners are enrolled on a number of courses and are making use of additional learning resources. Tutors and other teaching staff are providing informal and formal feedback as the learners complete summative and formative assessment.
