What is the latest gift of brain to mankind.
ONLINE Learning can benefit 7 billion of the world from cradle to grave.
ONLINE is for millions and billions.
Since ONLINE can be shared by million its almost costless. If accessed by 1 million per year cost is only 10 cents per year per course.
The most congested population is K12 .
Turkey is the only country in the world to have online 100 % to all its 15.000.000 K12 population.
And free. It is an example to the world.
It is the social responsibility project of Turk Telecom .
Same can be done in the USA by Microsoft for 60.000.000 K12 students. Why not.
It is a matter of vision.
In fact we have the English versions of all K12 contents we are willing to share it with USA .
Coming to higher education.
Higher education is more universal. All nations go to each other to get higher education.
A fantastic project www.academicearth.org in the USA has great vision.
They offer 150 or so contents in almost every field from Yale, Princeton,, Harvard, MIT, Stanford, Berkeley, UCLA, Columbia, Uni of Michigan, Oxford, Cambridge, London Uni. and more in the near future. All courses are fantastic. Anybody in the world can access a Yale course as a Yale Students at Yale Campus can access. The exactly the same lectures and materials, homeworks, exams. It is free. Iam opposed to that. I ask them to charge a nominal $ 10-20 per course for sustainability. If a course is taken by millions in the world it is a good income for the sustainability and enlargement of the project.
Plus there are some others. But rather than creating more sources it is much better to support the academicearth.org since it proved itself and it is a perfect working project without any doubt.
Let us have our vision to enlarge academicearth.org as soon as possible.
academicearth.org courses can be shared by
Community Colleges of USA
Other colleges and Universities of USA
Whole world universities and colleges
1-2 billion can reach them.
Please look at the matter as a brand name. An online by an unknown university is worthless internationaly. So we have to support academicearth.org. They have the best name in town and in the world. They can also develop more courses according to requirements of other community colleges and colleges., since they will have resources once they sell courses at $ 10-20 .
The first job of ICDE is to classify all OER material. Let us do not encourage free things but nominal prices. I do give a job to ICDE to support, promote disseminate in the worl academicearth.org
