BBC: Ivy League education free on the web

Post Date: May 16th, 2012 | Categories: Advocacy, Media, VF updates, programs, events | COMMENT

Many school children shed sweat and tears to pursue the privilege of a top university education. But only a lucky few will make the grade and then they will have to fund it. The tech world however is full of visionaries intent on disrupting traditional establishments. BBC Click’s Sumi Das reports on a brand new project which is already causing ripples around the globe as it is making a top notch education available to anyone, anywhere and for free.

“I have waited many years to see something like this that would empower working people, poor people, and isolated ones, to learn at the top level from the best in a more accessible way.”

    The Idea of free education for everyone is a good one. The fact that it is available to people from different countries even makes it better. I think this is first of its kind. I pray for great strength and God’s favors for the the sponsors of this programme. I hope they will be able to maintain this and make it last.
