Leveraging Blockchain for OpenSTEM Africa

A new project between the Open University and the BlueScreenIT company is leveraging Blockchain technology for OpenSTEM Africa. The project is developing a business case and implementation model that leverages Blockchain capacity to create a smart and sustainable future for OpenSTEM Africa, BlueScreenIT’s education offerings and explores the wider potential for this model across the Open University.

Alexander Mikroyannidis will be working on the technical specifications for the use of Blockchain in education contexts in the low resource and low connectivity regions of OpenSTEM Africa. On 28 September 2021, Alexander held a workshop between the Open Blockchain group and the OpenSTEM Africa Blockchain project. This workshop has initiated a discussion for understanding and outlining the scenarios for the efficient use of Blockchain in this challenging educational context.
