Pasadena-based plan for online university draws interest, skepticism

EXCERPT
Reshef said keeping the new university peer to peer will allow it to remain tuition-free. Classes won’t be headed by a professor; instead, students in each class will be given lecture material to discuss in online forums. Students will still have weekly assignments and quizzes and a final exam, much as they do in other online courses.

“The only difference is we don’t have the professor to monitor the discussion,” Reshef said.

Hofstra University law professor Daniel Greenwood, one of a handful of professors helping Reshef shape the curriculum and structure, equated the idea to an academic version of Wikipedia, with correct answers reached as a group.

To be admitted, students must have a high school diploma, access to the Internet and fluency in English. Instead of tuition, they would pay nominal fees for enrollment — from $15 to $50 — and exams — from $10 to $100 — with students from poorer countries paying the lower amounts.

Reshef anticipates opening in September with 300 students, to be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis. Initially, the university plans to offer only bachelor’s degrees in business administration and computer science. He expects to apply for accreditation as soon as possible, he said.

Once the university has 10,000 students, it will be self-sustaining, he said. Until then, it needs $5 million to get started, $1 million of which Reshef said he is putting up himself.
