There are millions of lifelong learners across the globe who do not have access to the world’s greatest institutions of higher learning, but do have an Internet connection. The Faculty Project showcases incredible Professors in an unprecedented series of free online courses that will dynamically engage this audience.
The Professors involved have been recognized by their students and peers for their excellence in teaching or have shown a remarkable talent for educating. They are intelligent, diligent and care about their students. Most importantly, they are interested in sharing their knowledge to more people and creating a lasting mark in the community.
The Faculty Project will be launched in early 2012 and the courses will be taught through online video, PowerPoint, PDF, and articles on Udemy.com. Each course will have a discussion board where learners can interact with each other and the instructor. The content will be available for free, forever, to anyone who wishes to consume it.
