Web3 Teaching Platform, Proof of Learn, introduces Learn-To-Earn

Learn to create NFTs, smart contracts and more

New Web3 learning platform, Proof of Learn, aims to provide high-quality education globally via blockchain technology. Now the company is revealing its first project, Metacrafters, a learn-to-earn platform. 

Proof of Learn incentives students by rewarding them with NFTs and cryptocurrency for mastering skills. Likewise, the platform offers potential employers a transparent view of each student’s skill level.

The company hopes to increase the number of students who complete massive open online courses. According to studies, only 5-15 percent of students complete the open online courses they register for.

“Blockchain technology has already transformed the global industry, making its best-known impacts in finance, art, and real estate,” Founder and CEO of Proof of Learn, Sheila Lirio Marcelo, says in a press release. “This new tech remains largely untapped when it comes to innovating the way we learn and what we do with what we learn.”

According to the Metacrafters website, the platform will teach students to write smart contracts and build on-chain. The site includes learning modules where students can learn to create NFTs and staking applications. Additionally, Proof of Learn aims to target students in emergent economies primarily. The learning platform feels that it can help “narrow the digital divide” by teaching Web3 skills to low-income students worldwide.

“As a team with strong personal ties to developing countries, like the Philippines, we care deeply about creating new education and employment opportunities across the globe,” says Marcelo.

Learning in the Metaverse

The metaverse certainly has great potential to immerse students in their studies. Legends of Learning, an educational game platform, recently raised $5 million to create a metaverse presence. Additionally, Make Real’s Sam Watts released a video in January detailing how gamified virtual learning experiences are transforming work. Additionally, ORamaVR Launched its MAGES SDK, powered by metaverse moguls Unity and Unreal, which allows companies to develop medical training simulations.
