Abstract: This paper explores the potential of blockchain technology in the education sector, aiming to address its traditional challenges and inefficiencies. While technological advancements have proliferated, the higher education system in developing countries has remained largely unchanged. The study presents a bibliometric and qualitative analysis of blockchain in education, emphasizing its temporal development, emerging themes, and practical case studies. Notably, blockchain's prominence in education surfaced around five years ago, with a focus on verifying academic certificates and transcripts. However, limited efforts have been directed towards comprehensive academic records reporting and connectivity, hindering interoperability. To overcome these obstacles, the paper proposes an education blockchain based on learning outcomes and graduation requirements, facilitating continuous curriculum improvement and post-job competence evaluation. The study highlights blockchain's potential in revolutionizing education by enhancing security, accessibility, and transparency, demanding further research and experimentation for its successful integration.

Keywords: Blockchain, Education, Challenges, Applications, Transparency.
