Abstract

Open Educational Resources (OER) play a pivotal role in the traditional teaching learning processes. So far, there are several problems in the conventional OER such as tracking and tracing of OER, proper attribution, sustainability, publishing time and single point of failure due to its centralized nature. This paper proposes a Ethereum blockchain based decentralized and distributed framework to alleviate the problems existing in present OER. In addition Interplanetary File System (IPFS) has been included in this proposed system for storing the hypermedia as distributed way. It reduces the storage time. In this paper, we design distributed and decentralized infrastructure for OER system that remedies all of these drawbacks through the use of the Ethereum blockchain platform.
