Blockchain & OER :sync:

Rory McGreal (Athabasca University)

This paper focuses on the benefits and challenges of implementing Blockchain technology in support of OER. To date, there has been no efficient means of disseminating OER allowing for maximum availability. Blockchain can effectively support accessibility to OER, housed in publicly available, distributed global knowledge network. Blockchain can also be used to address some of the significant concerns that faculty have expressed regarding OER (eg. Fear of adaptation; no attribution).
