Decentralized Crypto Grades
Using blockchain technology to change the grading system, enabling a more affordable education.
What is a provocation or insight that might inspire others during this challenge?
I think more research into Blockchain technology in relation to grading systems is necessary.
By relying on a network of interconnected learning tools that communicate with each other, schools could drastically cut costs.
What if you could get a grade for doing a Code Academy class that actually contributed to your college GPA?
There is currently technology available that could allow people to make a grading system that is not institutionally specific. You could have a grading system that is decentralized while still trustworthy. This means that you could have a class that assigns code academy as a class, and the grades you get on that site could be transferred to another institution.
If schools could safely utilize tools like code academy in their curriculum in the grading system, teachers wouldn't have to design their curriculums from scratch. Also instead of having to grade papers by hand, smart contracts could automatically record grades based on the online work done.
Look at the video and white paper for more information on blockchain technology.
