University of the People (UoPeople) is not a normal academic institution. It has no buildings and no “live” lectures. In fact, all of its instruction is based on text. Though it has over 40,000 students, the number of participants in every course is never more than 30, and classes are held in an online collaborative group forum in which students are required to respond to one another and make a significant and original contribution to the discussion.
