Open Source Education

I’ve been diligently at work writing up my ideas and plans for the Jack Mountain Bushcraft University, and have been getting feedback from our alumni about the process. The general plan is to take the academic components we’ve developed over ten semester programs and put them online for anyone, anywhere, to use. We’re putting together a system of peer and facilitator review so as to verify the completion of work, and we’re hoping to have the whole thing available for free, or for a very low cost. As I’m headed to Masardis with the Earth Skills Semester Program folks in a week, the pressure is on to have the first course online before then since we have no internet (or water, or buildings, or anything) in the woods of Masardis.

The plan is to have the whole thing be open source, or free and 100% transparent. We plan to use our online network to facilitate the process, so if you haven’t joined the network yet, please do so here.

More details to come soon.
