I had to check to make sure this wasn't Jon Dron's paper on a similar topic, but this paper (7 page PDF) has none of the depth or complexity of that one. It offers a thought experiment featuring a person learning about decentralized finance and asks "what are some of the systemic implications instructional designers and researchers should consider for online and distance education environments?" The thought experiment features the student taking a progression of courses, eventually landing it what can only be described as something like a traditional university class, only hybrid. Does anyone really learn about an emerging topic like decentralized finance that way? I'd feel sorry for them.
