Peer to peer University (P2PU)

Peer to Peer University (P2PU) is a nonprofit online open learning community which allows users to organize and participate in courses and study groups to learn about specific topics. Peer 2 Peer University was started in 2009 with funding from the Hewlett Foundation and the Shuttleworth Foundation, with its first of courses in September of that year. An example of the "edupunk" approach to education, P2PU charges no tuition and courses are not accredited. P2PU offers some of the features of massive open online courses, but is focused on people sharing their knowledge on a topic or learning about a topic offered by another user with a DIY wiki-type mentality
