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 https://freecampusdotorg.wordpress.com
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 was tested during Fall 2014 using one course. It expanded to Blackboard based on level of interest, participation, and collaboration. TED, TEDx, TED Ed Lessons and Blackboard Community were added in 2016.

A fresh attitude on climate change. Al Gore’s optimistic, impassioned talk about climate change lifted spirits on a topic that has been the source of so much concern. “When any great moral challenge is ultimately resolved into a binary choice between what is right and what is wrong, the outcome is foreordained because of who we are as human beings,” Gore said.

Mark McCombs was TEDxFSCJ Guest Speaker during TEDxFSCJ Salon “Technology & Society”. He spoke about his work at Renaissance Jax supporting First LEGO Robotics competitions in Jacksonville. Watch his TEDxJacksonville Talk “Why Every Kid Should Build A Robot | Mark McCombs | TEDxJacksonville.”
From YouTube TEDx Talks: “All 21st-century students deserve a role in engineering the future. McCombs will give a first-person account of what happens when children are given an opportunity to see what they are capable of in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). He believes that hands-on, mentor-driven robotics education contributes to a sense of self-efficacy, which may be the one of the greatest advances we can see this generation make.
Over the past twelve years, Mark McCombs has been a part of FIRST Robotics as a student on a high school team, as a college mentor, a head coach, volunteer, tournament director, and now Affiliate Partner for FIRST Lego League in the North Florida Region. As a student in the program, Mark was profoundly impacted by mentors and engineering idols who turned his curiosities towards the field of Mechanical Engineering. Now the founder of a machine design, engineering, and fabrication company, McCombs spends most of his time working on Renaissance Jax, a nonprofit he founded with the mission of expanding access to the very program that shaped his experiences as a young engineer.”
