This is the start of an era of massive open online learning. In fall 2011, Stanford University offered a free online class in Artificial Intelligence. 160.000 students from 190 countries enrolled, with more than 23.000 completing the class. Now they're readying a batch of new free classes on topics such as Technology Entrepreneurship, Game Theory, Model Thinking, Software as a Service, Applied Cryptography, Programming Languages, and Web Application Engineering. We're complementing the massive global online classes with in-person local study groups and community.
There were several posters at the conference though. Mine reported on using the web to provide interactive university-level courses, based on a summer project at the University of Oslo, Norway. I also demonstrated "XHTML" which extended HTML with semantic tags and mathematical visualizations. I still remember another poster showing how a web browser could be used as an alternative UI for the filesystem and OS.
Ted Nelson, who coined the term 'hypertext', said after his talk that he thought the web was an excellent step forward. By the next year it was everywhere. Twenty years later, many of the good ideas from back then are mainstream.
Brant Cooper is local advisor to the program. We have some of the best startup mentors in the area on board. Ten startup teams have signed up, so we're closed for new registrations, but we're already planning another round later in the spring.
