Daphne Koller is enticing top universities to put their most intriguing courses online for free -- not just as a service, but as a way to research how people learn.
With Coursera (cofounded by Andrew Ng), each keystroke, quiz, peer-to-peer discussion and self-graded assignment builds an unprecedented pool of data on how knowledge is processed.
Daphne and Andrew are advocates of MOOC's (massive open online courses). They launched Coursera in April 2012. By April 2014, Coursera had 7.1 million users in 641 courses from 108 institutions.

The force is causing the expansion of the Universe to continue to accelerate rather than slow down and collapse in on itself, as current theories would suggest.
