Free Campus is an initiative to share knowledge in a collaborative way using free social media tools and free popular video talks to generate discussions. Visit freecampus.org

Course resources are created as events or posts in our Facebook page and blog and linked to course sites. Enrollment is free and discussions, file exchange, and link exchange are open to anyone interested in the topic. Engagement occurs in different sections of courses and continues after a regular course is over.

Participation and collaboration in the topics are encouraged to add resources to the topics. No exams nor required assignments, Self-assessment is encouraged.

The model will be tested during Fall 2012 using one course.  It expanded to Blackboard  based on or not level of interest, participation, and collaboration. TED, TEDx, TED Ed Lessons and Blackboard Community were added in 2014. 

Like Facebook page and engage in Social Media Learning too.
