Knol Bulletin Board - Education

A Lot More of IBM Watson in Our Lives
We will see "A Lot More of IBM Watson in Our Lives". This natural language artificial software system will take the role of clarifying a lesson to students on a one to one basis.

Finnish school system is number one in the world now. But it is un-american in many ways. There are no private schools. There are no rankings. There are no standard tests. There is more emphasis on equity. Effort is to provide same facilities in all schools rather than creating schools with different facilities and ranking them.

Higher Education Forum (HEF) India felicitated Dr. K.V.S.S. Narayana Rao for his Digital Knowledge Sharing Effort through Knol.

Some thoughts expressed by speakers at the convention of HEF

I opened a knol to identify the topics that would help undergraduate program in Computer Science and Engineering.
Knol authors can indicate knols that are relevant for various topics in the syllabus. I shall link them to those topics. We can create similar linked syllabuses for various other universities.
