academic earth

another great resource introduced to me by my little bro. it is good that he is keeping his mind engaged and active during his downtime away from military training.

academic earth’s mission statement reads: “Academic Earth is an organization founded with the goal of giving everyone on earth access to a world-class education.” Sure, this sounds crazily ambitious but if you look at the existing educational content on the website and appreciate the inter-connectivity experienced by the world today, that begins to seem plausible.

the recorded video lectures span subjects such as literature, biology, entrepreneurship, philosophy, medicine and religion. these are delivered by the top scholars in the world of their respective fields and to the top academic institutions globally. i think that a paradigm shift is becoming apparent in the whole concept of education. a lot of it is of course due to how technology is reshaping how we access and use knowledge.
