Education Reimagined: Tokenized E-Learning and Blockchain Certification through Dragonchain Academy

Accessibility

The vision for Dragonchain Academy is a far cry from conventional training and education methods, which are largely gated by geographic and financial factors. With the Dragonchain Academy, users can receive all of the benefits of an expert-led curriculum design, without being restricted to a determined schedule and location. Students will be able to take courses on their own time and at their own pace, while also avoiding subjects they do not want or need to take.

All learning spaces, be they physical or online, also have course prerequisites that limit access. Establishing conditions for enrollment gates education programs off from substantial parts of the community. Whether these conditions are specific degrees or certifications, an application process, or even something simple like having taken a prior class, they all have the effect of shrinking the pool of potential students. In an effort to eliminate these barriers to entry, the Dragonchain Academy supports all major programming languages and levels of experience. Users with no prior blockchain experience can engage with the content and start earning Dragonchain certifications.

Affordability

There are many obstacles in the way of blockchain education, but the most prohibitive elements for most prospective students are enrollment and tuition costs. The Dragonchain Academy alleviates this problem by delivering courses at little to no cost to its users. Users can get started for free on 100 level courses like Dragonchain Certified User and Developer: Smart Contracts and earn access to higher level material.

Tokenized Incentive Loop

In addition to being recorded on the blockchain, certifications earned on the Dragonchain Academy will also benefit from our tokenized reward system. This system allows users to earn Dragons for successfully passing assessments and becoming certified. These Dragons will help cover the cost of higher level certifications, letting users progress through the Academy without having to pay out of pocket. With a sufficiently strong performance, users may even be able to net a positive sum of Dragons from getting certified. These Dragons are the Academy’s reward for becoming more educated and expanding the blockchain community.

One of the major insights that has come about from user feedback and our interactions in the blockchain community is the substantial interest in blockchain topics and certifications. This is contrasted by the comparatively low number of education programs in the space and public knowledge of where to earn blockchain certifications. The Dragonchain Academy is designed to tackle these issues, with a program that is equal parts accessible, comprehensive, and relevant to all backgrounds.

The Academy released on November 30, 2018 and will continue to put out content and certifications for users at all levels of blockchain experience. Future courses will include topics such as Blockchain for Business, Custom Contracts and Dragonchain Architecture, supporting both Dragonchain-centric and general blockchain learning tracks.
