University without teachers opened in California


Strange but true! In California, a university called 42 without any teaching faculty has recently been opened. Being a branch of the institute of the same name in Paris, incepted in 2013, 42 is designed to train students through a year-long programme in coding and software developments. Without teachers, the students in the university will help each other with projects, and then mark one another’s work. The university was founded by French technology baron Xavier Niel, under the objective ‘peer-to-peer learning’ with project-based curriculums. Graduates from 42 in Paris have so far been absorbed in big multinational companies like IBM, Amazon, Tesla; and many among them have started their own firms as well.
