Providing education and training to meet the changing requirements of modern society and to provide for the individual is extremely crucial. The traditional system of education, which has now been in place for a considerable time, has improved by means of involving technology. Online learning has become a recognised part of the broader landscape of education. Increasing numbers of students from different backgrounds and places are taking the opportunity to study online. However, online education in the current stage is facing considerable challenges due to lack of trust and accreditation, which could lead to undesirable consequences. The primary target of this research is to investigate the feasibility of using blockchain and smart contract as technologies to provide an infrastructure for online education that enhances trust, privacy, and security.
