The Pedagog Platform is an educators created and managed e-learning platform which wants to revolutionise the global education industry targeting all segments and age groups of students including from professional skills based courses to degrees.
The Pedagog Platform is the blockchain-based part of MASSIVE OPEN ONLINE COURSES (MOOC++), The platform considers principles of learning from COGNITIVE PSYCHOLOGY, emphasizes academic honesty & integrity through its proof of study protocol, & provides optimized UX through self-executing smart contracts to enable learners to earn verified Nationally Recognized and Internationally Accredited certifications along with skills based certifications.
When we say its an ''Educators created'' platform we want to emphasise that we have an aim to make ''Education'' reach masses at the most affordable costs to learners
DISHONESTY DUE TO SOCIAL PRESSURE LEADING TO DESPERATE UNETHICAL PRACTICES IN
EDUCATION - Huge problem with people, even at top level, buying and using fake degrees – they are desperate because a) they are too busy with work and/or family (not enough time), yet they have the money (successful in career), they have the desire (they know that education is their ticket to further personal and professional success), hence desperate for certification and resort to illegal / unethical means of obtaining qualifications b) traditional models of education are not able to accommodate such learners – they are often inflexible, and too structures,
hence pose difficulty to such busy professionals
COMMERCIALIZATION OF EDUCATION HAS RUINED YOUNG PEOPLE WITH HEAVY LOANS BEFORE LIFE EVEN STARTS FOR THEM - Traditional education comes at very high cost – which even successful working professional may find it difficult to cope with due to having so many existing expenses, majority of which would often be the family. Blockchain based learning platform could level the playing field and allow more people learn
and earn qualifications at very highly affordable pricings
TRADITIONAL EDUCATION IS OVERLY RIGID, HENCE DIFFICULT TO PERSONALIZE IN MASSSIVE SCALE -There are so many others physical and social-psychological barriers in accessing traditional education that are confined to specific infrastructure (geographical limitations), as well as confinements in terms of heavy reliance on rigid structures that are often not conducive for learning and/or the running of the business of education
TRADITIONAL EDUCATION DOES NOT EMPOWER LEARNERS – INSTEAD IT CONTROLS, IF NOT SHAPE LEARNERS INTO A PRE-DETERMINED MOLD (AND WE WONDER WHY IT’S HARD TO FIND CREATIVE INDIVIDUALS FROM THE SCHOOLING SYSTEMS WORLDWIDE) - Traditional education has been predominantly PRESCRIPTIVE – people are told what to learn, why to learn, and how to learn – on complete contrast – The Pedagog Online platform places full responsibility and power in the hands of learners – learners will make informed decisions about courses to be selected and studied either to upgrade themselves, prepare for a career, or change from one career to another.
