ODEMio — The First Decentralized Education Marketplace
ODEM - GET YOUR ADUCATION ONLINE
The ODEM platform has been made possible by the emergence of cutting-edge blockchain technology that allows qualified and trusted members of the education industry to create customized curriculum and experiences and offer them directly to the market. The ODEM platform further provides students with more choices for housing, transportation and other necessities. It allows international and local students to take ownership of their education. ODEM will facilitate live, in-classroom experiences, supported by online capabilities.
ODEM is more than just an education marketplace. Through Ethereum-based smart contracts, agreement between students and professors will be attained with the least possible involvement of intermediaries. The platform’s exchangeable utility tokens will act as a common currency to smoothen cross-border payments and to incentivize professors to keep their courses up to date and relevant. Our dream is making education from the world’s top educators accessible to everyone.
Using the power of blockchain technology and its smart contract-based payment platform, ODEM will enable students and professors to interact directly and participate in the exchange of education and learning, without the involvement of intermediaries. Our goal is to make quality education more accessible and affordable to a broader audience. Demand for U.S.-based education has risen enormously with students from Asia, Africa, South America and the Middle East, seeking access to traditional four-year colleges as well as providers of customized training and curriculum.
ODEM and it’s secure, blockchain-based platform allows students to seamlessly interact with educators and to seize opportunities to access custom-designed courses and education programs. Students can use ODEM to search for curriculum that meets their needs.
“Our mission at ODEM.IO focuses on empowering people who do not find their fit within the structures of existing education institutions. The ODEM platform uses blockchain technology to streamline the logistics of organizing and delivering short-and-medium-term academic experiences that have traditionally been plagued by inefficiencies. Blockchain technology also underpins the creation of what we call ODEM Token, an exchangeable digital token that will ease cross-border payments and encourage professors to align their course offerings with students’ changing needs.”
