Shai Reshef dreams of making quality education affordable and accessible to everyone, and he sees the Internet as the road to get there. Reshef is the founder of University of the People (UoPeople), which bills itself as the world’s first tuition-free, degree-granting, non-profit online university.
"Open Educational Resources (OER) as well as the open source technology Moodle are adapted by our volunteer course developers and redesigned to fit into the curriculum for our four degree options (B.S. and A.S. in Computer Science and Business Administration). UoPeople tries to make sure that a student with any Internet connection, even the most rudimentary one, is able to access our courses and study at our university."
