Tenured Professor Departs Stanford U., Hoping to Teach 500,000 Students at Online Start-Up - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Kenya School Report - 21st Century Learning and Teaching | Scoop.it

I am curious to see how this turns out. This reminds me of a program to be offered by UBC (NextGenU), where health sciences courses will be offered online for free to encourage participation from students in developing worlds. More importantly, the NextGenU program will offer an equivalent of a master’s degree in public health, called a Certificate in Public Health, endorsed by the American Association of Public Health Physicians, the Public Health Foundation of India and the Presbyterian University of East Africa in Kenya  - making education accessible.
