Educating the general public about the web3 and its broader complexities remains the #1 priority in the blockchain industry. Nas Academy and Invisible College recognize the need for a set of dedicated courses. Their joint Crypto Academy for Web3 is paving the way for a stronger educational focus and onboarding the next million users.
Invisible College and Nas Academy share a vision
The term “web3” still confuses most mainstream audiences, mainly due to a lack of dedicated educational resources. This will change for the better on September 1, 2022, when the new crypto academy for web3 will open its doors. Hosted on the Nas Academy platform and developed with the help of Invisible College, it will cover nearly twenty courses addressing the key concepts of decentralization and web3.
Over $2,000 of educational content will be available on day one. Rather than charging admission or a recurring fee for this content, it will be accessed via a non-fungible token. Users who own a Decentralian NFT on the Solana blockchain can unlock a new utility layer. These NFTs are an admission pass to Nas Academy courses and allow holders access to events organized by invisible college. Essentially, they unlock massive content and knowledge.
Invisible College co-founder Nick deWilde explains this unique combination:
“We believe combining a high-quality course catalog with an NFT collection is a fundamentally new way to empower students to take ownership of their education. And we could never have succeeded without Web3 technology. We also needed a forward-thinking partner, ready to innovate with us. Luckily, the Nas Academy team are just the type of crazy dreamers who could help us expand our vision and make it a reality.
Owners of a Decentralized NFT can access the new courses for free. This will apply to course materials available on day one and to new courses that will be added over time. Invisible College and Nas Academy will collaborate to integrate leading Web3 instructors and the lessons they create. This aspect is part of Invisible College’s long-term ambition to become the largest online learning library3.
The next iteration of online education
As online education is a booming business, it will have to evolve with the internet. Ownership of content does not focus on art, music, or video, but also includes educational materials, lessons, and more. Invisible College and Nas Academy create a new frontier by linking this educational material to an NFT, of which the user is the exclusive owner. Additionally, one can transfer NFT – and its associated benefits – to anyone else, allowing knowledge to be shared with a much wider audience.
Web3 will redefine the way people think about content ownership and the implications it can have. With this new course catalog, students can build, influence and invest in the future of the Internet. Course material will cover crypto fundamentals, NFT investing, video editing, community building, and more. Additionally, non-fungible tokens can reinvent the way people approach and consume online education.
