Just as title said - do you like to learn? World Science U is great start for both, someone who just like to learn basics or someone who really likes to learn all details. Please see this promotional video:





Philosophy

World Science U believes that digital education should be more than a new delivery vehicle for traditional instruction. Our initial offerings, taught by Brian Greene, Professor of Physics and Mathematics at Columbia University, are a step in that direction. In the coming months, we will announce additional instructors and courses.



Science Unplugged

Science Unplugged provides hundreds of short video answers to a wide range of questions from “What is a Higgs Particle?” to “What happens to time near a black hole?”



Short Courses

Short Courses, aimed at a broad spectrum of lifelong learners, typically require two or three weeks to complete, and have no homework or exams. They provide non-technical explorations, which go beyond traditional science popularizations.



University Courses

University Courses are university-level offerings that typically require eight to ten weeks to complete. Students work at their own pace, and will earn World Science U certification upon successful course completion.

Nice! I hope there are lots of competitors as well, we need to escape from institutionalized education.

I am glad you guys like it.

I was using Udacity for couple of years. It is great way to continue growing and learning, but World Science U is special as it specialized around String Theory and Quantum Mechanics. Thanks to many misunderstanding and misuse of quantum theory by Chopra, I got interest to learn more about it.
