Asgardian MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses)  

Hello Asgardians!

I have just put up a post in the Administrative Affairs subforum asking for community input on MOOCs. The post will be open for a month before being locked, and compiled for development. For your convenience, the link to the post is HERE

I take a bunch of free online courses through www.alison.com and www.futurelearn.com both are great. Coursera is another one that is great to use. Even LinkedIn has courses (but those I believe you may have to pay for them). Everyone should be taking these courses to improve themselves and to keep there skills current. MOOCs can only help Asgardian citizens to make them better understand the world around them. We also need more people with Technicial/scientific skills if we want to build this space station.

I feel very strongly that because Asgardia is a pioneering concept, the focus of education should not be on youth first, but on the adults,, the general population. 

Asgardians will come from an Earth economy, and need to function in space, something currently reserved for an exclusive few astronauts who have billions of dollars in support. 

Asgardian adults will need mastery in robotics, access to sudden language capabilities, and material fabrication skills. 

Prospective Asgardians would ideally have access to full space, technology, and emergency fabrication training from now until the time they might apply their skills.

The Concept of MOOCs is free access to training and education. A MOOC must be designed specifically for Asgardia, that is centered upon, engineering, technology, Maths, Science amd space living. Everyone will have to know basic first aide, damage control amd fire fighting. We will all have to know how to operate  (i.e. move around) in zero G. We have to know culture, history, art and the like as well, but any MOOC that cones to Asgardia will have to mostly centered around the above. In my humble opinion.

Created the Academy of Sciences of Asgardia? Very good. However, in our project "The Academy of Asgardia is an educational and general educational structure, it is necessary both for earthlings and Asgardians.

is this Academy of Sciences actually part of Asgardia, sanctioned by Dr. Igor (Head of Nation)? or is this someones idea of what it should be?

Hi Ra, I'd like to invite you to the Projects team. We're currently working on a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) program and would love to have you be a part to help us go forward. Email the projects team with your resume at projects@asgardia.space email address. I'd love to hear more of your ideas.

Thanks,

Leo

When Asgardia becomes an officially recognized nation, why couldn't we have our own online or better yet Virtual university that awards officially recognized degrees?  I am a power engineer by trade but I have always been fascinated by astrophysics, astronomy, astrology, quantum physics and quantum mechanics.  If we could find instructors willing to teach, I don't see why it couldn't be possible to educate our citizenry in fields that we need to advance our Nation.

I'm looking forward to this! Taking up education & training for a work needed in Asgardia & contribute in its success.

Sag 17, 01 / Nov 21, 17 19:51 UTC

"contribute in its success"

Why?

Sag 17, 01 / Nov 21, 17 20:04 UTC

Why not?

If people want to spend there time here, the more the merrier. I need someone doing something positive to make up for my miserable ass

Sag 17, 01 / Nov 21, 17 20:11 UTC

"why not" is not answer. That's redirection and avoidance. You're smart enough to know that.
