Aragon Nest Proposal: Education Platform


Before being great contributors on a project (with ideas, code, design or everything), on the begin they were newbies. I believe DAOs aren't just for team working, but also for studies; study is the basic thing before growing on their works and lead to knowledge.

Coding, human language (native and english as the most important), UX/UI design, security, and other things are needed before being a skilled contributor; but if we want to democratize the work, we need to offer an educational platform alongside it.

Note: I don't have skills to make it working, but to propose it; then you're free to begin implementing it on a pull request and receive your grants.


  1. An aragonOS-compatible application (the educational platform) that lets people create courses, learn on those courses, gets tasks/achievements, be awarded with open badges (or also monetary incentives) and share knowledge with other students


  • Vote to create an course
  • DAO will give tokens for who create and update courses
  • Courses can include videos, but needs to have text also, as it is basic
  • Course's text can be available in lots of languages, and their videos can support SRT subtitles
  • DAO can update the course, but updates needs to be versioned (courses can use pando) and course's users needs to be aware of those updates to update their knowledge - uploading new languages/localization will be also considered as updates, and will be versioned)
  • Courses from an DAO can be used on other DAOs (the DAO that created the course can earn tokens from its use)
  • Other DAOs can propose updates to the course of the original DAO
  • Courses haves basic info: basic skills needed, hours/time of learning, etc.
  • Course's community, to share knowledge (don't make it able to share the answers)
  • Course's homework/tasks (and open badge achievements for completing them)
  • Courses can haves a start/finish time and study classes/groups
  • Courses can have an live teacher, that will be rated by students and granted with tokens
  • Live teachers can send their own homework/tasks, and create their own open badges
  • API to give advanced features for courses (english course can have words to pick, coding courses can have a CodePen-like sandbox for playing)
  • When user completes each module on the course, the user earns open badges (or also tokens) for each module
  • When completing the course, user is awarded with an open badge (or also tokens)
  • Users can post a feedback about the course after completing it
  • Referral: if user earns tokens for completing modules/course, its referrer earns a share of it
  • Achievement Open Badge for referrer: each time an referral completes a module/course, he earns a badge about it (also depends on the Open Badges app)

Grant size

Funding: from $100k up to $150k in ETH, split into chunks paid out over achieved deliverables.

Success reward: Up to $100k in ANT, given out when all deliverables are ready.

Application requirements

  • Details of the team members, alongside with their willingness in terms of implication
  • Estimated average burn rate for completing the deliverables
  • Legal structure to be adopted, if any

Development timeline

To be discussed or to be proposed by the team requesting funds.
