Oxford dons to lecture over the web


University lecturers will soon be delivering the fruits of their wisdom over the web through a new 'webucation' centre.

Boxmind was set up by Oxford graduates earlier this year, who have enlisted the services of some well-known Oxford academics including Richard Dawkins, proponent of Darwinism.

Boxmind currently exists as an online library and is carrying out a review of the thousands of academic sites available on the internet, rating it in order to publish some of the material on the site. Apparently they're going to be extremely fussy about what they include: "Your chances of getting through the Oxford admissions system will be higher than our acceptance rate of websites applying for our approval", said Niall Ferguson, a co-founder and professor of political and financial history at Oxford. The site does appear to throw up some information, albeit a relatively small number of items, but it then becomes a bit confusing to identify how to access the item.
