Though blockchain is a well-known technology in tech and other industries still it is a newbie for
the education sector. Only a handful of education institutions have deployed this technology. So,
there is a huge scope to adopt this technology for students, teachers, institutions and classes.
According to a survey, only 2% of education institutions use blockchain technology and 18% of
institutions plan to adopt it.
Blockchain technology can revolutionize the education sector in multiple ways. Still, Blockchain
is an evolving technology, individuals will realize its role and adopt it gradually.
Do you know how our ancestors manage data? Firstly they used slate and pen then
paper and pen came into the picture then humans have innovated computers that stores
data. Now a technology called blockchain stores data like no other platform can store,
provide and manage.
Blockchain tracks the records of degrees, certifications in the most secure digital
form under the control of the holder’s digital credential. Many education institutions ask
students for verification through senior authorities blockchain technology removes the
role of a verifier.
Blockchain technology uses a distributed record-keeping system called a ledger. A
ledger holds the critical data in a digital form. The data in the blockchain is immutable as
no one can change or replace it once it is uploaded in the digital form of blocks. It
improves the transparency among the institutions and students.
Moreover, it allows students to record their resumes with credentials data. Students
can record their academic records in the most secured form. When students are
applying for jobs and hunting for jobs their crucial identifier documents will be secured.
So no chance of a fraudulent person replacing the job posting.
Blockchain helps students to transfer from one school to another or one state to
another state. It happens with the easy process of blockchain selection of the same
subjects with their respective holder students’ names. It is a boon for students whose
parents have frequent job transfers from one state to another. In addition, it helps
students in transferring from primary to secondary and from secondary to college.
Blockchain technology is resistant to fraud. Recently in India, many exam papers are
leaked before the execution of the exams. Blockchain technology can remit this kind of
leak. It is a highly secured platform to store students’ exam data.
Blockchain technology helps to identify unique inventions registered as patents and
copyrights. It is the most secure platform for intellectual property assets. It maintains
intellectual property at a low cost and high efficiency.
The scandals of replacing the paper publisher’s name, changing the real owner of the
document would not happen with this technology. As it saves information in the
embedded block form.
Moreover, NFT (Non-Fungible Tokens) is the biggest trend in blockchain technology.
Students’ unique art or the paper is tokenized and it generates huge value for art
appreciators. NFTs, help students to protect their unique art and get the optimized credit
for creating it.
Blockchain creates the digital identity of students with their scorecards. For any student,
the most precious asset is his Academic records. Alumni students can hold academic
records with them in their smartphone app. Now, institutions are just required to state
the app name with credentials. The employer will get the details of students with their
academic records and select the ideal one for his company or organization. See how
easy and manageable.

students. It makes the hiring process easy and fast.
Moreover, it makes the hiring process more transparent and secure. There will be
no chance of nepotism or any other fraud during the screening process. As the academic
records are stored in the embedded block form.
Even the employers can register themselves on the blockchain and place the
requirements of the post. students can check, and apply for the ideal one.
So, lots of innovative models and apps can bring revolution in the field.
Block chain offers smart contracts where pre-decided terms of contracts are set. When
the pre-decided terms are met, the contract is executed. Teachers can program the tasks
of students in blockchain and when students are completing one task they will
automatically get another task.
Teachers can program the entire exam in the blockchain. The grading will also be
facilitated with these smart contracts. Teachers can devote their precious time to other
crucial tasks. Blockchain will store the grades of every student.
See how the magic happens with blockchain technology.
There are numerous competitors in the education industry, so students can’t decide the
ideal institute for them. As blockchain is a decentralized system, students can share
their experiences and rate for institutions and online courses. So, students can
verify through opinions which helps them to choose the right institute.
Blockchains establish new models which aid to cut down costs for students and
institutions. Smart contracts can eliminate the roles of various administrative third parties
which reduce the cost.
Moreover, institutions fees can be paid in cryptocurrency form based on smart contracts.
Just like EMI in simple terms.
Students will get exposure to wide resources in terms of materials, information that
remains in the public domain and are free to use. Blockchain allows these copies to
share freely on public networks.
Blockchain Network can associate the various authorities together and make an ideal model
which helps the parties. Moreover, it can work as a public network and any experts can share
their knowledge and skills relating to particular aspects. Some initiative steps are required from
the education authorities to discuss the applications of the technology in the field
