Institutions in the current educational landscape op- erate independently. They exhibit reluctance in sharing their teaching and qualifications with others due to the fear of dam- aging individuality. This practice, however, is counterproductive for the students as they suffer from various difficulties and get deprived of certain benefits. In this paper, we explore the possibility of finding a solution to this deadlock. We argue that Blockchain-based decentralisation can offer a passageway where educational institutions get to keep their individuality but participate in collaborations to help overcome the problems students undergo. Our principal contribution in this paper is a conceptual educational landscape to show how institutions could potentially manage record-keeping, credential verifications, and continued career support in a decentralised environment.
