What We Do
ODEM, the On-Demand Education Marketplace, serves students by making education, skills development and employment more affordable, accessible, verifiable and transferable.
ODEM is an all-inclusive Marketplace that enables direct interaction between students, educators, institutions and employers to realize human potential’s fulfillment.
ODEM opens doors by connecting students with educators to bypass inefficiencies in traditional educational models.
To accomplish ODEM’s mission and provide value and exponential growth in demand, we have created a trusted blockchain-powered Marketplace. It enables qualified participants to create, verify and manage credentials, professional experiences and ratings of students’ education, teaching and workforce success skills.
Acquiring and managing accurate and verifiable records that are transferable on the ODEM network allows for more efficient collaboration between each of the Marketplace participants.
Students can share educational backgrounds, capabilities, needs and current-and-desired skills. By making verifiable data accessible to all participants within the global marketplace, we can better understand and track the knowledge, resources and curriculum to increase student and employer success in learning and acquiring the right skills that are in demand for a sustainable workforce and future.
What we have achieved so far since 2018

We’ll be integrating D2L Brightspace in December and Canvas, Blackboard, Microsoft Teams and Google in 2021.
