Abstract

The increased use of Internet-based tools in education can create a problematic situation for those without Internet access. In this paper, we propose a distributed cooperative data substrate (DCDS) that allows learners without Internet access to use digital learning tools on their mobile devices. DCDS combines delay-tolerant networking (DTN) mechanisms, Web 3.0 technologies such as blockchains and InterPlanetary File System (IPFS), and human computation to support reliable and secure data access in a decentralized manner.
