Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A national research and education network (NREN) is a specialised internet service provider dedicated to supporting the needs of the research and education communities within a country.

It is usually distinguished by support for a high-speed backbone network, often offering dedicated channels for individual research projects.

NRENs are usually the places where new Internet protocols are introduced before deployment within the Internet. Two examples of these protocols are IPv6 and IP multicast.

From Wikiversity

A learning model that I think is close to your desired one is as follows.

For example, I want to learn from Wikiversity to get my masters in Computer Science. I join the computer science group, and we collaboratively complete projects. The wiki's can be used like a source control application and it can automatically record what percent of the completed project each member has contributed. When a member meets a pre-determined percentage a degree is given.

For example, the CS group has two projects:

1.Create a mail client like Outlook.

2. Create a media player.

  • If one member writes 52% of project 1, (s)he receives a masters.
  • If another member writes 33% of project 1 and 20% of project 2, (s)he receives a masters.


This is a simplified example but a model that I think has potential.
