When a Blog is a University and More (Ref.: Marginal Revolution)

Things are moving really (really!) fast in online-education. Too fast to make full sense of them. Alex and Tyler are launching "Marginal Revolution University." And the first class is development economics. 

Strengths of the model: (1) It is supposed to grow on itself, and this means that users can add materials, this can be quite revolutionary indeed. (2) It will deliver in different languages (subtitles in short videos). 

We are about to see some creative destruction here. Alex says the motto is “Learn, Teach, Share.” Great initiative!!!
