Abstract

The blockchain technology has been a hot topic recently due to the skyrocketed price of Bitcoin, and many people have noticed the underlying technology of this cryptocurrency and applied it in diverse areas like finance or commerce industry. However, the application of blockchain in education is limited, which is a pity as the blockchain technology can address many issues like insufficient user interactivity and system interoperability in the e-learning systems. This paper aims to propose a conceptual model for e-learning systems and use word-learning community as an example by adopting the blockchain technology to address the above issues. The potential applications of blockchain are introduced and discussed, and a system evaluation is conducted based on an ISO quality model to verify the effectiveness of the proposed model.
