The new blockchain technology could revolutionise the way beauty and wellness courses are taught in universities, according to the founder of a company based in the UK.
“The blockchain has the potential to transform the way people study beauty and wellbeing courses in the future,” said Jules Wahl, founder of The Beauty and Wellbeing Collective, in an interview with CoinDesk.
He noted that, unlike traditional teaching models that use video or lectures, the blockchain could replace video lectures and online courses entirely.
The blockchain is an open-source protocol for peer-to-peer collaboration.
Its purpose is to allow people to interact with each other without relying on centralized platforms like traditional classrooms.
Wahl is also the co-founder of the British blockchain company Digital Education, which he founded to provide the same services as a traditional teaching platform.
Digital Education has partnered with a number of well-known beauty and beauty tech companies, including Beauty.co.uk and Vibes, in a joint venture that is now valued at $1.8bn.
Wels says he sees the blockchain technology as an opportunity for learning and teaching to be fundamentally transformed, with the goal of making learning and learning from learning “more efficient”.
The blockchain can offer a platform to enable “self-guided learning”, as well as providing a means for people to participate in a community.
Wals says the blockchain has been used to teach students about financial and legal aspects of the world, as well providing an educational platform for self-help and meditation, among others.
It can be used to deliver real-time data to the world and it can be linked to social networks and even governments.WALS explained that he thinks the blockchain can help people to make “big changes” in their lives.
He believes it could also revolutionise how universities are taught.
In a 2014 TED Talk, Wals described the blockchain as a tool that will enable the creation of a decentralized, peer-reviewed learning environment, with an objective to provide a “peer-to_peer” learning environment.
In this world, where learning is not taught in the traditional way, we need to democratize education and change the way we teach,” he said at the time.
According to Wals, he sees an opportunity to transform what is known as a “teaching environment” by using the blockchain to offer a “virtual reality” experience, where students and instructors interact in a virtual world.”
I think the blockchain is the perfect medium for teaching and learning, because it has the capacity to do that,” he explained.
Walsh says that he believes there are already plenty of promising projects and partnerships in the blockchain space.
He said he hopes to see the blockchain use in more and more industries.”
There is a lot of potential here,” he added.
