KATE TAIRYAN (Simon Fraser University)
The world’s first free university
This project aims to create the world’s first free, globally-available, high-quality health sciences university (www.globaluni.info). The project will use under-utilized resources and technologies to revamp and improve health sciences education. This project addressed the World Health Organization’s expressed need to use computer-based technologies to create four million more health providers and tackle the health Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
