Education is a global industry. Worldwide expenditures rose to an estimated $6 trillion in 2016. Year-on-year growth in demand is fueled globally by population growth and an expanding middle class in Asia and Africa. Despite prospects for increased spending, students face many hurdles and restrictions that reduce the accessibility to quality education experiences. Rising tuition costs, student debt and layers of intermediaries, including universities, shut out many prospective students. For many, education is neither accessible or affordable and we feel like that is unfair. The platform is a single, accessible, and distributed network that allows students to seamlessly interact with professors and their academic partners in-person, onsite, in both local and international settings to raise the quality of accessible education at reasonable cost regardless of geographical location.
Through Ethereum-based smart contracts, agreement between students and professors will be attained with the least possible involvement of intermediaries. Our mission is to make education from the world’s top educators accessible and affordable to everyone.
