Is blockchain any good for education?

    Hi everyone,

    Would love to hear community thoughts on how/whether blockchain can be used for education. I've been asked to do some research on the topic and I've read a couple of articles on this topic.

    Most of these articles list "transparent student records", "immutable data storage", etc. as most appropriate use of blockchain in education (and some even demonstrates use cases in education with and without blockchain). However, I still struggle to believe that schools/universities need to allocate money for development and move their infrastructure (or at least part of it) on blockchain.

    So as I said, all thoughts are welcome.

    The blockchain model can be applied anywhere data is being stored.

    In what way can the model be applied to education? Storing reports in a blockchain?
    The question does not make sense to me.
