This is an evolving pearltree with no 'set' rules as to the paths of the pearls. (In fact, there's nothing cast in stone so if the team wants to change the focus or even the name in the future or anything in that regard - so be it.)
It's a learning experience in itself as we look at the opportunities for someone who might visit this pearltree to find the information they need in their life. It's also where the team members can add whatever they feel is of use to them, and whatever tangent or branch, or information they find that might relate in some manner to free education.
As to organization within the pearltree, and adding other pearltrees, pearls, content, suspect there are different ideas on that, and that's up to you.
We might find of course that some categories are in order, so add your touch to this pearl. I don't think there's a right or a wrong way to do this, but suspect that might be up for debate, and if there's a best practice that evolves or there is an etiquette here, you tell us, or better yet, join the team. Please!
I personally like a diversity of ideas and finding a pearl you post - such as those hidden 'pearls' of someone doing something interesting in learning and education somewhere in the world, be it educational material - such as free emergency services training video on medical triage over a mobile phone in a disaster in a third world country, to a total on-line degree for free, or unique ways of melding say - audio, video, text, multimedia, multi-lingual educational materials on any subject matter, to lists of resources, search engines for free education, and free education on unique topics, applications, age specific programs, or a story of a life changed by free education...and well - you get the idea.
You're the designer of this pearltree!
Team members - if you care to, it would be great if you would post a note here on your interests so in our travels, your other team members might find a pearl to post of interest for you that we might not have not pearled.
As well, if you are looking for something in particular at anytime or have a question, ask. No guarantees on answers, but based on some of the profiles and other pearls of team members, and the community, there's a great level of expertise and diversity of backgrounds here that may be able to help.
No question is a dumb question. We all have different levels or expertise.
Since we have folks from different areas and languages, no worries on grammar, spelling, but if you can explain your needs as best as you can, we understand and respect the fact that you may speak one language better than another and glad to have you.
Team members? Is the above information okay? Thoughts? Are there others you want to invite as team members? Have fun!
PS Just so you know - I may be online constantly and (unfortunately) disappear for a days, a week, etc. depending on work/obligations or miss a message accidentally so contact me again. (It appears that I can easily miss or mix up messages here, sorry!) Plus, I'm sure I'm not needed here with the other team member skills! May 14

Salman Khan’s dream college looks very different from the typical four-year institution. The founder of Khan Academy, a popular site that offers free online video lectures about a variety of subjects, lays out his thoughts on the future of education in his book, The One World School House: Education Reimagined, released last month. Though most of the work describes Mr. Khan’s experiences with Khan Academy and his suggestions for changing elementary- and secondary-school systems, he does devote a few chapters to higher education. In a chapter titled “What College Could Be Like,” Mr.

The Healy Hall tower at Georgetown University on May 01, 2012 in Washington,… (Mark Gail/THE WASHINGTON…) Georgetown University is joining one of the most prominent ventures in online higher education, a Web platform known as edX that provides courses from elite schools to a global audience free of charge. The addition of Georgetown to edX, which officials plan to announce Monday, marks the latest development in a fast-growing movement that aspires to connect the ivory tower to the world. Millions of people have signed up this year on various Web sites for massive, open online courses, or MOOCs , which offer self-paced learning through video lectures, tests, homework, discussion boards and other digital interfaces. Advocates say MOOCs will democratize higher education and spark a teaching revolution on campuses. Skeptics call it little more than brand promotion.
The development of online courses poses a more practical problem for the humanities. Photograph: AP Let's be clear, access to quality lectures for free is a fantastic achievement, allowing hundreds of thousands to access knowledge for its own sake. But with Tedx, Coursera and others like them taking part in the democratisation of education by removing it from the shackles of consumerism and the market, there is a risk that such developments will be detrimental to the exploration of knowledge in the long term. Carole Cadwalladr recently reported in the Observer that free online access to tertiary courses and lectures was set to revolutionise education.
