People's Open Access Education Initiative: Peoples-uni

Various authors, Website, Sept 25, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Peoples-uni is a very interesting online learning initiative. It uses open educational resources and volunteer tutors to provide low-cost ($30 per course) learning online. The focus is on public health courses, which are normally over-subscribed or overly expensive. So fare they've run three semesters with about 100 students each time. There is an option that allows people to donate, which will allow a student to enrol for free. The organization is based primarily in Britain and Nigeria, and is a UK registered charity.
