Blockchain technology is making life easier for so many people and so many industries, such as for instance the medical industry, one of the most prominent and most valuable. Another important field blockchain could positively transform is education. Although it seems far-fetched, there are projects that have succeeded or are on a good path to succeed in changing education for the better. Here are 10 of them, in no particular order.

1. BitDegree (BDG)

The first decentralized smart-incentives based online education platform, BitDegree works by ensuring the exchange of tokens between a sponsor, i.e. Incentive Creator and a student, i.e. Incentive Taker, who then commits to study a specific subject via online courser in order to receive Incentive in the form of tokens. Due to such a reward system and the fact that they already have 353 online courses to choose from, we believe the platform is set for a stellar success in the years to come.

2. Tutellus (TUT)

Another EdTech platform that rewards learning is Tutellus. Although it currently focuses on the Spanish-speaking world, Tutellus is an entire ecosystem benefiting all participants – students, teachers, and companies, with the help of the Pool tokens and the Market as entry points. The students get a rare opportunity to learn for free and earn rewards in the form of tokens, as well as getting Relevance and access to valuable services inside the app. Tutellus has been operating since 2013, so we believe such an established platform is indeed one of the best out there.

4. Spitball (SBL)

Dubbing itself “a decentralized Student Economy”, Spitball 2.0 offers a platform facilitating the global exchange of knowledge, content, and items (like books for instance), in return for a fair reward. Offering their 1,000,000 user base a customizable wallet and intuitive ecosystem powered by the SBL token, their vision of transparency should lead them a long way, even in the face of increasing competition.

5. Blockcerts (BCERT)

Blockcerts is an open standard for creating, issuing, viewing, and verifying blockchain-based academic credentials and certificates. Their app has already gained traction and has high reviews on app stores. Instead of locking their users to proprietary blockchains, Blockcerts can issue to any blockchain, allowing the use of multiple chains for an extra layer of security. This is one of the ultimate solutions for this industry and there is no reason why their popularity should falter in the future.

Gradbase’s mission is to end CV fraud, as their estimate is that as many as one-third of people lie on their CVs, stealing away the opportunities from honest candidates. Gradbase solves this problem by allowing instant and frictionless verification of any personal qualification. To this end, they are working closely with their multiple partners to establish a system allowing instant qualification verification based entirely within the BTC blockchain and are bound to revolutionize this field in the times to come.

10. Open Badges

A brain-child of Open University, Open Badges are tokens of achievement, affiliation, and authorization, providing a detailed picture of a person’s learning experiences throughout their life. These details include participation, certifications, community involvement, as well as other skills developed outside of formal educational systems. Open Badges have multiple use cases, the most important one being job applications. The project already has a long list of participating issuers (including NASA!) and this is definitely one of the top blockchain projects in education to appear so far.
