UoPeople: Scaling Down Costs While Opening Access to Higher Education
University of the People (UoPeople) - a non-profit, tuition-free, online academic institution – aims at building a model capable of opening access to higher education for those currently constrained due to financial, geographic or societal restraints. By amalgamating open source technology, open educational resources, peer-to-peer learning and the goodwill of qualified volunteers, UoPeople is able to provide the opportunity of higher education for deprived individuals. Additionally, UoPeople’s model is capable of impacting higher education globally as parts of this model are adopted or replicated within universities and governments – thus scaling down the overall cost of higher education.
