APE University (educational institution in Web3)

Hi guys! Before writing my first AIP, I would like to discuss with you the topic of opening a Web3 University. I’m interested in your thoughts. In the prop house, I outlined briefly how it should work. The AIP will be formed more and more clearly. If the guys from Boring Security join this with their experience, it will be great.
Briefly, the proposal refers to the opening of a university with the training of Web3 specialists in various fields divided into groups, with mandatory attendance and exams, followed by the issuance of diplomas in the SBT token format.
It is planned to start with a discord server and subsequently move to its own site with personal accounts of students and teachers, etc.

I think it could be a good idea, as more and more people are becoming interested in web3. If APE becomes the first to open a school like this, it will be seen as a reference.

The idea is good. To begin with, as part of its development, I think it’s worth making separate branches in the official ApeCoin Discord, and then look at the development of this topic. Determine the directions of the courses, the order of the classes and their format.

Great idea, what is the end game of the SBT tokens?

Would it be to land roles in web3 or to prove your knowledge over a certain subject?

Thanks @musclekong for your support. In fact, at the moment everything is at the stage of translating the idea into reality and the team has yet to be formed.

Yes, you are right @Cevidu , if everything is done correctly, we can become MIT or Stanford/Harvard University in the world of Web3

Thanks @LaneWill for the question. I think we can cover all the specialties needed for the Web3 world, we can create a training program that starts with general knowledge and gradually add narrowly focused specialties. Just as they teach in educational institutions Web2. In any case, the study program requires competent compilation by those who are well versed in this and have experience.

It would be great if the official Apecoin Discord server dedicated a section for this.

The same as the diplomas that we receive after graduation - proof of graduation in one direction or another.

Yeah… Learn and teach could be next future in therm of growing audiences. Think about opencampus and animoca investment on educational system. By that way start more and more stuff

I like it. But keep in mind that opening an educational institution, even in Web3, is not easy. It’s not just about opening a discord server. Either way, I’ll be interested to see where this leads.

@Russell I like your idea. Education, in a good way, should be systematic - regular and go according to a certain plan. Many in Web 3 are enthusiasts, without pedagogical experience, so it is important to build such a system so that the material arrives in a logical chronology, is relevant and understandable to everyone.
To go through all this alone is very difficult and long, not everyone reaches the end. APU University will be a great solution for the entire web 3 community

I think this is a great project. It should be more global, the funding that is provided is clearly not enough for full implementation. Of course, everything depends on the scale that @Russell sees in the future

A well-developed educational program will be required. It would be good to organize a system of personal mentors, conducting joint streams and video tutorials

It will be great if a graduate after graduation will have a personal portfolio of projects built on the integration of $APE in each direction. Possible employment assistance from the university and the DAO

As a result, we will get a community of like-minded people who share ideas, inspire, create projects and even look for employees. This will allow APE University graduates to determine the future of web3 themselves

I am interested in this topic myself. I am not a developer, but I would like to dive into many areas related to web3, maybe change my profession

This actually sounds like a fantastic opportunity

Yes, this project is aimed at increasing the number of specialists in the Web3 space, who can be provided with work based on their knowledge gained at the University.

Thanks, @Zloj ! Yes, this is undoubtedly an important part; specialists from different fields should be involved in the development of a learning system.

This would undoubtedly be beneficial both for a potential student of the University, for the University itself, and for the DAO too.

This actually sounds like a very nice idea!

We need to understand what is needed for this.

It can be many different ways: course for creating own DAOs, on-chain analytics, programming in Web3 (solidity, etc.) and others. But firstly, we need to start with one and prepare materials well. That’s how I see it. But tbh I’d suggest to create new DS server/web-service for such needs to not combine DAO with education.
