    They should have other colleges, possibly high schools, participate in this.
    I think education will see a marked improvement when you can choose, even as a elementary student, what interests you most. Schools will be able to offer a huge variety of subjects without having to hire experts on them. Instead a teacher will probably monitor and learn along with the students. Combined with educational software and video games, we are about to see a marked improvement in student interest, participation, and motivation. Besides this the quality of content is likely to be much higher. Probably a lot of jobs will open up for creative individuals to craft this system.

    The greatest impact will be in destroying the political control of education. Here, in the UK, the content, management, funding, entry requirements, marking and content is all highly political. It consumes vast amounts of taxpayers money to pay the bureaucrats and living expenses of half 18 year olds to attend residential courses far from home. The department of Education and the universities themselves have, over the decades become populated with Left leaning people mostly associated with the Labour party. In schools too, this is even more political with elaborate social ranking being used to determine who goes where. Our exam system is controlled by the government or its sympathisers, systematically infiltrated by Labour party supporters over the last 13 years whose task has been to give the greatest number of people the greatest number of broadly equal standard so that no-one shall do better than anyone else – as far as is politically possible; enthusiastically supported by powerful, Marxist, bovine teaching unions.

    All this would be swept away with education becoming an on line, student driven, performance oriented mass participation activity. I can see this extending not just through higher education but to secondary, primary and pre-school too and then professional, technical and job training all dependent on AI for implementation, virtually no bureaucracy and the best brains in the business doing the content. I can\’t wait.

    There are reasons why they have set a target of 200k I think.
    The infrastructure design complications, and costs to host even the most automated systems become increasingly cumbersome with load.
    Even youtube probably couldn’t handle one million people viewing the same video at one time.
    Now if the courses are provided asynchronously then the potential for attendance would be able to grow much larger.

    Sebastian Thrun of this course and Google’s Eric Schmidt had involved themselves into crimes which had endangered human lives. Anyone trying to excuse them is getting into such crimes as well. Schmidt and Thrun’s side are indebt to such crimes.
    Here is the latest development in Stanford student May Zhou’s case when someone said the case was officially closed [ http://bit.ly/mayzhoucase ]

    what exactly are those crimes peter? Why would they need to murder a student? I read those blogs, but I don\’t know their motives, and why would they be after you? Are you a student at stanford? What are you studying? I realize that it is a real police case, but Why link them to this crime? Also, why were you assaulted? Anger? Or something else?

    If you can’t provide clearer evidence, noone will take you seriously.

      I have patience to clarify again: The motives of their crimes is to help Sebastian Thrun who collateralled with

      this criminal suspect Gabriele Scheler to fight against ruling from authorities against their crimes. They

      murdered that Stanford student to terrorize me and to threaten authorities.

      I was not a Stanford student by that time, but I was about to get into Stanford to work, and then horrible things

      began all from Scheler’s false accusations and Thrun’s retaliations. I was recommended by Thrun’s bosses in

      Stanford to get into Stanford as a solution to the complication, but Thrun pretended not knowing it in advance,

      and he collateralled with criminal suspect Gabriele Scheler (they both have German origin, so do Eric Schmidt) to

      deliberately trap me, threaten me and retaliate on me for sake of Scheler. And then for the next several years,

      while they dare not confront me to clarify the case, people behind them had played all kinds of tricks to cover up

      their crimes, crimes as serious as intrude my privacy, manipulate my private communications, killing the innocent

      Stanford student May Zhou to threaten me and to terrorize Stanford people, set up coup in Stanford, conspire

      authorities who rules against them … People behind Scheler and Thrun would do anything extreme beyond my

      imagination …

        But why do they want to terrorize you? What is so threatening about you?

        What were the crimes they commited previous to threatening you?

        I had replied a lot to you, but my posters were cencored, not display.

        I think the above poster would answer your questions here, you just need to read them again. They use a real murder case to threaten my life while all of their crimes could be covered up in the legal system. They are closely watching me by monitoring my private communication, manipulating all of my friends and relatives to deceive me and threaten me, tails me on streets, false charge me at authorities which makes me suffer but never let me know details of their false accusations, so that I don’t even have a chance to defend myself, whicle being molested for many years. I don’t have ability to reach them and monitor them but to fight against them on the web.

        It happened just as Eric Schmidt told me that: Police may not even find out who did it (killed May Zhou). That’s very scary.
