New Interview


http://northernspiritradio.org/episode/free-universal-school

MacLeod, Scott, and Mark Judkins Helpsmeet (interviewer). 2017. Free Universal School: Scott MacLeod is founder & president of World University and School (WUaS), an effort to make a high-quality, versatile, free education available to all who desire it, via the Internet. Drawing on wiki technology and with a tremendous supply of creative commons-licensed open courseware from MIT & Yale, WUaS is launching its first 4-year class this fall. This project aims to make the education and learning available in a vast number of languages, eventually all languages from all countries - always free to the student. While the vision is breath-taking and the goals lofty, the plan draws on established and tried tools, and overlapping projects like Stanford Online High School  and other ground-breaking implementations. http://northernspiritradio.org/episode/free-universal-school. April 9. (An hour-long phone interview;
title by Mark Helpsmeet). Eau Claire, Wisconsin: Northern Spirit Radio.
