During the recent pandemic events and lockdown, most educational institutions have moved into online and distance learning. Certain institutions have been more ready than others to shift into full online learning and teaching mode. However, many technical and security challenges and issues related to the learning management system have been encountered. In this article, we investigate the technical benefits of blockchain, and we propose a secured and trusted online-leaning framework based on blockchain. Our proposal takes advantage of blockchain technology to ensure the expected standard of teaching and fairness of assessment while respecting the schedule of courses and exams. Through blockchains reward methods, it also motivates both students and teachers to persist in their efforts, even from home.
