Crowdsourced syllabus for global open education initiatives to flourish
Learning via the internet is exponentially more accessible as we see more open education initiatives take root. The problem is that to a newbie, the world is vast and the information online is overwhelming (and sometimes distracting). There are so many places to start, that without the proper guidance, you stumble into believing that any one piece you discover is starting point 'x'. The issue with this is that you may be assessing your progress or clicking through to additional content before fully seeing the whole picture...and even possibly "putting the cart before the horse". Why not crowdsource the development of a global human syllabus for learning online (and offline). The greatest minds coming together to map out the best way to understand the world around us would be a very powerful educational resource.
