"The Floating University aims to change the way higher education works by changing how college is structured," writes BestOnlineUniversities, which lists Big Think's venture in The Mobile Learning Revolution: The Top 101 Resources. "The idea is that education is moving away from a centralized physical location and more to somewhere students can learn from anywhere."

The Floating University's online course, "Great Big Ideas," was produced in partnership with Big Think and The Jack Parker Corporation. It is available for free on YouTube here.
