The Amazing World Science U is Now LiveMarch 13th, 2014
Brian Greene. a well-known author of many books on physics including The Elegant Universe and professor of Physics and Mathematics at Columbia University has created World Science U. Along with other scientists, authors, teachers, and creators, World Science U will be offering interactive, online courses focused exclusively on science. The goal is not to replicate the traditional classroom, but instead take the best parts of that classroom and push them toward the future.
This is a great opportunity to learn real science from one of the leader’s in the field and an author who is expert at explaining complex concepts to everyone. Below is an initial view of some of the quick answers, short courses, and university courses being offered. Currently, the site has one pilot University Course, Special Relativity, involving about 300 elements, taught by Professor Brian Greene. Other university-level courses are forthcoming. Best of all, all classes are free, for now at least, while Greene considers the proper revenue model.
