In the past 18th September, IEEE Academic, a project that aims to deliver to students worldwide high quality educational contents in their own language, launched its beta version.
The goal of the project is “to create an online educational resource where students worldwide can access freely to contents developed in their own language, by professors in their Universities and Schools. We want to build the Wikipedia for multimedia educational contents, with contributions from student-branches and universities all over the world.”, quoting Rui Costa, founder and coordinator of the project.
In its offspring, the project will count with contents made by IEEE Academic initiatives from Portugal, Turkey, Greece, South Africa, Pakistan and USA that will have the first contents available until the end of October.
The website beta version has been launched already with contents from the IEEE Academic Portugal, and is seeking for feedback from all the visitors to improve the platform in order to cope with the needs of students and enthusiastic learners worldwide.
IEEE Academic is online at http://academic.ieee.org and all the updates will be announced in the social media at facebook.com/ieeeacademic and twitter.com/ieeeacademic.
