L2B Smart Contracts
The Open Source University blockchain is used as a distributed database to store learner certifications & acquired skills. Matching algorithm will handle big data calculations to connect businesses with the right candidates, optimising recruitment costs, sourcing time and precision.
L2A Smart Contracts
Learners have all their degree credits safely stored on the blockchain, allowing them to pick their career paths via course suggestion algorithms based on live data business needs (and skill demand projection). This provides learners with access to a flexible, fast track education model.
B2A Smart Contracts
Allows businesses to access a new generation of Learning & Development marketplace, where learning content providers are filtered according to their disciplines catalogue and academic rating (both stored on the blockchain), while payments are securely managed by smart contracts eliminating the need of middleman transaction processing.
