Introduction

The emergence of Blockchain technology promises to decentralise and revolutionise not only the financial world, but also education. Blockchain technology offers opportunities to thoroughly rethink how we find educational content and tutoring services online, how we register and pay for them, as well as how we get accredited for what we have learned and how this accreditation affects our career trajectory. This free course explores the different aspects of education and lifelong learning that are affected by decentralisation and Blockchain technology.

In the following video, Dr. Alexander Mikroyannidis from The Open University outlines the contents of this course:
