What is Blockchain

Blockchain is an advance ledger that enables the secure recording of transactions, activities or/and transfer of various business assets. It can be a shared, distributed or private. These assets can be anything from food products to currencies, cars to copyrights. Virtually anything can be tracked and traded securely on a Blockchain network and it’s poised to be the next disruptive wave in the digital business.

CASE STUDY PEARSON

Building a learning platform used by 60,000 students a year

Business needs

Pearson felt that their management and administration of BTEC assessment and exam administration required updating. With several disparate databases and applications, plus a reliance on paper-based processes and manual uploads, a full digital transformation was decided upon.

The requirements included a log of activities being distributed across the school network which would be secure from hacking and reliable.

The nature of the academic cycle presented considerable timescale challenges in achieving this. Amdaris was chosen for the task.

Our Solution

All the requirements were researched which enabled the project to be broken down into clearly defined segments. Workshops were run to better understand workflows while front end UI and UX were also researched.

As Blockchain works as a highly secure and decentralised network, this was chosen as the the best solution. The log of activities could be distributed across the school network which would be secure from hacking, plus if any of the individual school's ledgers became compromised the system would remain stable and reliable.

Ensuring old and new software could integrate was important to control costs and ensure that existing assets were used. When completed, the new system could handle: course registration, exam booking, invoicing, exams, delivering computer based text, BT, authoring papers, commissioning and paying of authors, marking, grading and result release and certificate printing.
