P2PU and guess who’s a student!
For those of you that missed the announcement, the first courses at the Peer to Peer University started on September 9, 2009. The Peer to Peer University is an “online community of open study groups for short university-level courses”and it’s an exciting development for the changing nature of the educational landscape. While there’s lots of issues to resolve before such initiatives become widespread (accreditation being an important one), it’s great to see this come to life. To celebrate the launch, I have enrolled in the Introduction to Cyberpunk Literature course . I am interested in the topic from lots of angles, and since I am interested in improving universities and their role in society I can also act as a participant-observer.
