Academic Earth – Providing High Quality Online Learning Opportunities
Aug 4th, 2011
MIT, Harvard, Berkley, Stanford are few universities which are dream of almost every student. Very few people are able to convert this dream into reality. What is the main reason behind the success of these universities? Infrastructure, Management, Research areas or any other facilities? No, all these reasons are secondary, the first and foremost reason behind success of any educational institution is the quality of Professors they have. These Professors inspire the young brains to become a genius and which in turn increases the reputation of the institution.
Students of other universities long to attend lectures of professors teaching at these universities so these universities started providing video lectures. These online course videos became an instant hit but main problem was they were scattered. So in the year 2009, academic earth was launched on March 24. The main idea behind it was to collect all the video courses from best universities and provide them on a single platform.
