One and a half days ago, we were about to give up in this operation. And one of our mentors challenged us to try it anyway. So this is what we did. Fantastic people from all over the world started to support, some of them incredibly! And hope came back. It was possible to make it happen!
Today, we've reached our goal and heading to new ones. We still have four days more to make education even more open than we planned in the first place, by onboarding even more people.
So please continue to contribute and share to get to follow the best classes of the world.
Learning is our passion. And we've always wondered what it's like to study in a school like Harvard or the MIT. Those schools are brilliant, the courses are brilliant! The teachers are brilliant!! (The word brilliant is brilliant :))
So with this operation, we want to make you follow online 1, 5, or 25 classes from these dream schools. To discover great professors, and make you feel like you were in the classroom, asking questions, following the notes taking, chating and connecting with all the curious people that are interested in the same subject.
How is this possible? Thanks to UniShared. It's a platform for collaborative and open notes taking. Practically speaking, it leverages Google Docs real-time technology to connect amphitheaters with the rest of the world, in order to improve the way people learn.
You can see how it works in this video:
For this project, these clases will be shared on UniShared by the five fantastic learning freaks, rigorously selected accordind to their writing skills and the quality of the classes they already shared. They will be sent to their dream universities like Cambridge or the MIT for one week. During this week, each student will take part in 5 classes which means 25 classes shared in total.
Those 25 classes will only be open to those who took part in the adventure. And everyone will be able to augment the class by talking to each others, adding links to relevant articles for example.
