Dr. Jean-Paul Restoule has done just this. As a professor at the University of Toronto’s Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, Jean-Paul offers a free course for anyone interested in learning about “Aboriginal World Views and Education” through Coursera.

Coursera is a for-profit educational technology company that offers a plethora of open online courses for free. With access to the internet, Jean-Paul’s use of Coursera enables anyone in the world to learn from his course.

Jean-Paul’s passion and profession focuses on making Aboriginal education accessible at a global scale. With a master’s of communications from the University of Windsor combined with a wealth of experiences in the Ojibway community, Jean-Paul’s free course illustrates that sharing knowledge is essential to a more culturally aware society.
