A Learner-Centred Approach for Lifelong Learning Powered by the Blockchain

  1. 1. Dr. Alexander Mikroyannidis The Open University, UK A Learner-Centred Approach for Lifelong Learning Powered by the Blockchain
  2. 2. 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.
  3. 3. 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. 5. Blockchain 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.

  7. 7. 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, in collaboration with the OpenLearn repository of open educational resources and the FutureLearn MOOC platform.
