What’s in a University?

What is a university?

  • A reading list (Unschooling’s got this)
  • A discourse community (StackOverflow)
  • A reputation (Portfolio; Smarterer)

What do we want from education?

  • Empowerment (Skillshare opens you to new perspectives / pathways)
  • Skills (practice makes perfect; contract work / volunteer)
  • Network (Meetup groups)

Wrap it into a package and you’ve got yourself the answer to traditional education’s shortcomings. Run it through a subscription model and you’ve got yourself a business.
