[RFP] ENS "School Nights"


ENS education is crucial for several reasons. Firstly, it helps users understand the value and benefits of the Ethereum Name Service (ENS). Where as any persons or entities can propose using this general guide with or without additions. You may use this in your proposals if the RFP is approved by the the Ecosystem Working Group.

Scope of Work

By providing information about ENS’s features, such as decentralized domain names and human-readable addresses, users can see the advantages of using ENS. I want to request of this from the DAO.

A thorough educational plan needs to be presented. Method of presentation is a must include. (platform, service, how the lesson will be delivered).

Provide a number of “students” you would like to teach ideas to.

Course Outline
Week 1 - Introduction to Ethereum and ENS

  • Basic introduction to Ethereum and blockchain technology.
  • Explaining what Ethereum Name Service (ENS) is.
  • The problems ENS solves (e.g., replacing long hexadecimal addresses with human-readable names).
  • Comparison of ENS with traditional DNS.
  • Overview of how ENS works.
  • Homework: Research and write a summary about a real-world use case of ENS.

Week 2 - Understanding ENS Architecture

  • Deep dive into ENS’s architecture, including registrars and resolvers.
  • Explanation of the ENS registry, and how it keeps track of domains and subdomains.
  • Discussion of the role of the Ethereum blockchain in ENS.
  • Explanation of the process to register a domain using ENS.
  • Homework: Register a .test domain on the ENS testnet.

Week 3 - ENS and Smart Contracts

  • Explanation of how ENS integrates with smart contracts.
  • Understanding of how to interact with the ENS registry in a smart contract.
  • A simple project: Writing a smart contract to interact with ENS.
  • Homework: Modify the contract to support more features, like resolving a name to an address.

Week 4 - Advanced ENS Topics

  • Introduction to reverse resolution and its importance.
  • Explanation of subdomains and their usage.
  • Renting and pricing models in ENS.
  • Discussion of ENS governance and ENS Improvement Proposals (EIPs).
  • Homework: Participate in the ENS governance forum and summarize a discussion.

Week 5 - Hands-on ENS Project

  • Students will work on a project that uses ENS - for example, a simple DApp that integrates ENS for user profiles.
  • This will involve both frontend and smart contract coding.
  • Homework: Complete the project and prepare for presentation.

*Week 6 - Break week for project

Week 7 - Project Presentations and Course Wrap-up

  • Students present their projects to the class.
  • Open discussion and Q&A about the projects.
  • Wrap up the course with a discussion about the future of ENS
