Every industry is typically disrupted by technology. From financial to legal services, retail to manufacturing, they all experience an economic and systematic impact due to innovation at some point. With a global edu-tech market expected to grow to $93.76 billion by the end of 2020, education is no exception to the rule.submitted by BlockDotCo to u/BlockDotCo [link] [comments]
Along with blockchain, technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Augmented and Virtual reality, Machine Learning, and Data Forecasting, will all play a major role in the educational system of the future.
Recently, South Korea’s Suseong University announced a plan to create a blockchain and AI campus in Daegu, an indication that the world is rapidly changing due to the global Covid-19 crisis and that a blockchain and AI-based society could be materializing quickly.
In addition to smart working, smart cities, and everything else that can be identified as a technology-driven system, smart classrooms are also not too far-off from being accepted as a new standard, and blockchain will help develop that new model by facilitating transactions, issuance of documentation and enhancing online security.
In a previous article, Block.co had already illustrated the benefits of blockchain technology for universities and all academic institutions. Cost-saving and anti-fraud support are only a couple of the advantages offered by the innovative solution.
A few months on, since that article, blockchain and other disruptive technologies have acquired a completely new significance in light of the current Covid-19 emergency. Remote working and learning have forced a re-evaluation of the existing technologies that turned out to be essential in easing the transition to a new performing method.
In most cases, due to the urgency, institutions were under pressure to accelerate their remote working adoption process at the same time as facing all the difficulties and major issues presented by critical situations. Those who were already using advanced digital tools like blockchain and Artificial Intelligence instead turned out to be better prepared and in many cases even more productive than in the pre-covid era.
Professor George Giaglis, Executive Director of the Institute For the Future at the University of Nicosia declared during the last Block.co webcast that “In order for a technology to be highly effective, an organization needs to invest in the right people first or the tech is wasted and useless. At the University of Nicosia, we were well prepared and our people were educated to cope easily with the new Covid-19 working from home situation. This helped them being even more productive since they did not have to spend any time adapting to a new working model”
In 2015, the University of Nicosia became the first to use blockchain to issue verified academic credentials on the Bitcoin blockchain. Professor Giaglis believes that blockchain for universities represents a basket of different technologies, all converging together to build a future with no limits. In particular, the way blockchain can and will be combined with AI or IoT.
Academic institutions that adopted blockchain early opened opportunities to commercial markets too, since any type of certification that requires tamper-proof against fraud finds a great help in the blockchain.
Similarly, the British University of Dubai was an early adopter of disruptive technologies and found it easy to adjust to the new working model. As explained by the other prominent guest of the webcast, Dr. Maria Papadaki, Managing Director at the BUiD Dubai Center for Risk and Innovation, “Remote working is here to stay because we have the digital tools that allow it”.
Yet, she also highlighted a different perspective: “Yes, it’s here to stay but not here to take the human being out of the system. We need to find a balance between what technology can offer in terms of improving our learning or working experiences and the everlasting need for the personal exchange of feelings and energy. We do not have to encourage a distance between students and professors, employers, and their staff, by allowing digital technology to overtake all aspects of relationships”.
Blockchain has helped both universities tackle fraud issues as well as certify students digitally on the bitcoin network, thus avoiding physical presence and even direct contact with the institution. In the coronavirus era, this turned out to be vital.
Decentralizing finance was the first original intent of blockchain, therefore it should not come as a surprise that also academic institutions might want to try that route. Tokenization via blockchain is an experimental use that academic institutions are attempting to facilitate payments. Smart contracts can be used to assign a reputation to users based on feedback from others, who will be initially verified by a blockchain-based ID system. Another model conceives blockchain to tokenize talent in a private tutoring environment. They are all experiments at present but give us the idea of what future directions might be for universities.
In this regard, Prof. George Giaglis reminds us that central banks will likely issue their own digital currencies in the next two years. This means that also all other digital currencies and tokens already in existence will be legitimized as a result.
One essential aspect of the adoption process of technologies like blockchain will certainly be a desirable collaboration between universities. Dr. Maria Papadaki has always been an advocate of creating a network between academic institutions in order to share and obtain the best results by technology. “BUiD is working closely with UNIC, Block.co, and the Dubai Blockchain center. It is a way of showing our commitment to both Emirates Blockchain strategy and Dubai Strategy to make Dubai the happiest city on Earth.”
There’s plenty of space for further technological innovation in the industry and one of the issues that will have to be resolved in the future is the possibility to mimic remote examinations.
During the Block.co webcast, Prof. George Giaglis launched a challenge to developers who would like to take the entrepreneurial way and could assist in building an application or software that will make remote examinations possible and trustworthy.
If anyone is interested in taking up the challenge, the University of Nicosia and Block.co would like to hear from them!

Technology has no doubt transformed the way we look at the world around us today. Every industry has had players which have initiated technological advancements and given benchmarks to others. Similarly, in the education world a not so new entrant is working callously in bringing transformation in this industry with very innovative and revolutionary advancements. This is European International University, based in Paris, which is working on path breaking technologies with the aim to make education reach the masses at the most affordable way and thus reduce the mass commercialisation of education done by other universities which has in reality ruined young people with pile of debts even before graduating.submitted by EIU-LOL to u/EIU-LOL [link] [comments]
European International University, Paris is to be credited for offering learners, both students and professionals, with the latest learning opportunities and unique learning experiences that they need and deserve. Along with the range of courses, certifications and degrees they have to offer, they are now planning to launch their own global e-learning platform which is named Pedagog
The engineering team deployed by this university is working in the reverse manner by focusing on the current problems faced by the students in the present day and by incorporating those elements in the development of their platform a truly revolutionised & futuristic e-learning model is been planned to be launched by the end of first quarter of this year.
The world has seen a lot of new things erupting in the past few years for example people talking about decentralisation, distributed ledgers, cryptocurrencies, bitcoins, ethereum, robotics, artificial intelligence & virtual reality which has brought in millions of new jobs and added billions of dollars in the economy, but at the same time along with the substantial growth the nature has also acted bizarre with the unforeseen on the rise - the Coronavirus which has at the hastily placed the world to its feet, bringing financial markets all time low, billions of dollars being lost in a matter of few days. Who won and lost doesn’t suddenly seems to matter when something like this happens.The reason to mention above relates to the fact that when the mission of any organisation is to think about others and not merely just its own monetary benefits, the only outcome then can be expected is the ‘THE BEST’ This is the mission of EIU Paris through its e-learning platform ‘Pedagog’
Following are the technology trends that has been incorporated by EIU Paris in the creation of its upcoming e-learning platform..
REMOTE LEARNING: Remote learning through virtual classrooms has reshaped education. This offers a huge step forward in accomplishing the fundamental right of EDUCATION FOR ALL. This has also overcome the limitations of time and distance, and all one needs is a reliable internet connectivity, paired with apt mobile technologies. High quality of learning is made possible for students by providing them access to educators or subject matter experts who may not be reached due to distance or time constraint.
INTERACTIVE GAMIFICATION: It is the concept of applying game design to educational content thus making it more engaging and fun. Educational content has reached the next level through UX gamification. There is a theory behind it. Interactive things are always easier to remember and retain. Thus, whole learning process becomes easy with this approach. The whole idea is to use the typical game technique of giving challenges, rewards to winners, providing harder challenges with even bigger rewards or digital token currency. Thus, the learner also earns while he learns, which of course is the biggest motivation to continue learning.
Pedagog -Gamified tutoring and learning Platform
VIRTUAL REALITY AND AUGMENTED REALITY: Virtual reality is the next big thing enhancing student learning and engagement. It cuts across all the barriers and gives a feeling of things being right in front of your eyes. Learners find themselves immersed in what they are learning and are able to process the information better, thus, resulting in lifelong learning. The research coders are continuously working seamlessly in introducing VR & AR in the field of education which is still in its very early stages.
BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY: The blockchain invention is now proven to be a success with its full proof ledgers and security. EIU is the only university of its kind for using the blockchain technologies to revolutionize the educational scenario.
It will be used in collaborating distributed information in database. It is been tested that blockchains can play an instrumental role in examination management, verification of student credentials, certificate verification, just to mention a few. Life long learning records can also be managed using blockchain. Thus, a huge step forward in educating the next generation of students.
ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE: This can do miracle by the use of advanced learning mechanisms to understand the needs of students and teachers, The Pedagog platform engineers along with leading AI consultants will continue the research to implement AI in every part of the e-learning platform to make the most favourable user interface in promoting learning to the masses. AI is still in its infancy though!
TOKENISATION – The introduction and the usage of their own native tokens by learners to study in this advanced platform is expected to make learning more fun and rewarding and the tutors on the other hand can expect income and growth of their revenues at the same time
At the European International University under the leadership of Prof. Dr Edward Roy Krishnan & Executive Director Jatin Anand we invite Partners, Investors, Venture Capitalists & influencers for mutual collaboration to discuss the possibilities for growth but mainly giving priority in bringing education & learning to the masses Anytime, Anywhere and Affordably!

Bitcoin in the classroom. In one Stage 2 classroom, students (aged eight and nine) were building a model using an engineering design process and their teacher also used Bitcoin to stimulate student interest in mathematics, which is possibly a first for a NSW primary school The Crypto Classroom Bitcoin 101 covers the fundamentals of BTC as well as the evolution since its inception back in 2009. Above all, this is the quintessential guide to what Bitcoin is and why it’s important. One of the most fascinating inventions of our time that caught the imagination of technologists and economists simultaneously was the Bitcoin. But now the financial world, central banks, financial institutions and also governments are in deep love with the technology brought by bitcoin – ‘the blockchain’ technology. The classroom might become a busier, more distracting place, but the benefits could far outweigh the setbacks. Chatbots are also being used to enhance classroom learning. They can be used to offer students immediate feedback in their studies, to track performance and make adjustments to curriculum, and can be used as a guide to keep learning on Bitcoin Classroom is a teaching tool about Bitcoin and many of the components that comprises Bitcoin. It will explain what Bitcoin is and it will act as an introduction to all of the academic fields of study which work together within the Bitcoin system. Bitcoin intersects and can be used in the classroom to teach about:
