Woolf will be the first fully accredited, borderless, blockchain-powered university. Woolf will use blockchain technology to enforce regulatory compliance, eliminate or automate bureaucratic university processes, and manage the custodianship of sensitive financial and personal data. As the first university built entirely on a blockchain architecture, Woolf promises to disrupt the economics of higher education by providing new opportunities for both students and academics. Woolf is currently developing an accredited platform on which students and teachers can connect, anywhere in the world. Woolf focusses on Oxbridge-style tutorials that prioritise personal interactions between teachers and students. Although the Woolf software platform is online, it will support both in-person and distance teaching. Woolf has appeared in news outlets globally in ten languages, including Forbes, Nasdaq, The Times, CoinTelegraph, and Bitcoinnews.

Synopsis
Woolf will be the first blockchain-powered university with its own native token. The
design has been developed by an independent group of academics (mostly from the
University of Oxford), and experienced academics will form the first college in the
collegiate university.
Woolf will be an accredited, borderless, educational society which reimagines how
teachers and students connect. It will rely on blockchains and smart contracts to
protect relationships between students and educators, enforce regulatory compliance,
and ultimately manag...

connects to the Woolf platform and triggers the relevant smart contracts on the
blockchain. Woolf will thus use digital technologies to reimagine how traditional forms
of education can be sustained in a geographically agnostic manner.
Woolf’s smart contracts are meant to reduce the need for a traditional university’s
administrative staff. Indeed, we hope many brick-and-mortar educational institutions
will adopt Woolf and increasingly phase out key portions of their administrative staff,
even while gaining access to new teachers and students.
The Woolf platform is designed to reduce bureaucracy, lower tuition costs, secure
teaching salaries, and increase the time that students interact with their professors.
The result is intended to be simple and powerful: students and teachers are brought
together, no matter where they are in the world. The more students and teachers
joining the network, the greater the range of options for everyone.
Woolf offers new employment practices. Woolf will be open ad...

1. Overview
Higher education today faces two great problems: student access and adjunct teaching.
We are creating a novel solution.
Students face mounting costs and geographical barriers that prevent many bright
students from getting access to the best education. Academics face increasingly
insecure employment, preventing many from leading a fulfilling career. Woolf is
designed to reconnect students and teachers across borders in an accredited
environment.
Woolf will be a borderless university in a global world. It will provide students with
clear opportunities to receive affordable and personal teaching. Blockchains and smart
contracts will relieve educators of key a...

will be ranked in a central system. Admissions are expected to be more difficult for the
highest ranked colleges
The first college at Woolf, Ambrose, is being organised by leading academics, mostly
with a background from Oxford. 80% of the faculty in the first five colleges must be
from the top 200 universities (using the Times Higher Education World University
Rankings). After five colleges have been created, Woolf will become open admissions
for qualified faculty members and selective admissions for students.
Our aim is for the formation of new colleges to be as simple as organising an academic
conference, so that a group of professors can start a new college and obtain gainful
employment doing what they do best. Woolf will provide professors with transparent
employment opportunities in a blockchain-regulated environment, with contractually
secure work of their choosing.
Essential administrative tasks will be handled by smart contracts. Smart contracts
execute under specific conditions –...

Woolf is not like other digital universities, and Woolf is not a system for massive open
online courses (MOOCs). Unlike most digital universities and physical universities, the
Woolf education will emphasise one-to-one personal tutorials. These are used both in
the natural sciences and in the humanities.
Tutorial teaching consists of small classes of one to three students studying directly
with a professor. Preparing for a single tutorial takes 2-3 days. A student must review
about 150 pages of material (depending on the subject) and prepare a piece of written
work – whether a mathematical problem or an essay. The student must then be ready
to discuss their written work directly with a professor for about 75 minutes. At the end
of the tutorial, the professor tailors the next assignment to the student’s weaknesses
and interests. At Woolf, like at Oxford, doing this twice per week is a full workload.
The academic year consists of 3 terms of 11 weeks, which includes cumulative
examination. Tutors ...
