That is a good news.However, I have a few that the speed of internet in our country is not yet developed to have online video
and streaming. I hope the internet
back home will improve soon to take advantage of this opportunity.

Guys here are some staffs we in Diasporas can do for our brothers and sisters back home. Whyn’t we download these videos and send them back home? If we buy USB of 10GB, we can download about two or three video lectures of post graduate courses.

Actually I have some video lectures for a few post graduate courses. I will distribute them to some of the science departments when I go home in the coming summer. Let us help the education of our country.

Forexample, NC State University has an
online free video lectures. There are also some online Pdf lecture notes from MIT in a wide range of studies.

You can also post the sites of these education materials in your website.
It may be also possible to post scholarship sites which you readers may be benefited from.

This is indeed good news. If the internet connection is not fast enough, then this will help to make it better. The students will demand more and better services and soon they shall receive. Like someone said already, we in the diaspora can do things to help along these lines - perhaps we can talk to the i universities we attended and have them creat programs like this. There are many ways to help, but just complaining and doing nothing is not the way.

This is good news for recipient and more opportunities for students to integrate their knowledge to international level of academia, which they have been missing. On the other hand it is good name for Yale to further advance their good name they have already established. Thank you so much Yale to even consider opening up your prestigious door for Jimma University and other underserved universities around the world

That is really nice. Those things are taken for granted here but hopefully they will be v valuable in Jimma.

The Python,
Thats an excellent point you raised about internet speed. People would most definitely have a hard time viewing some of the material online and the students may not be able to take advantage of the program as much as the other participating universities. I really like the idea of downloading the videos on portable devices to take home. If you/someone could organize more people to take part, those could be very valuable. If we can just co-ordinate and find out what courses are given in eth that have video content online, I think it would be great help to students in eth. For example, MIT has some video lectures for math classes that are very helpful in understanding material which I am sure people will find helpful in ethiopia. So I hope more people want to participate in this initiative. Python, i hope you post some more comments on this. Great Idea!

wow—really good news. Yale University is ranked 4-th all over the world and it shows how the Gov’t is workin hard to enhance the quality of education!

But is it Jimma University in Jimma, or there is another new built Jimma university in Mekelle? It isn’t clear.

This is good news for all ethiopian students back home.When ever any ethiopians go back home they should take few books with them to help the schools and library.It does not take too much to help our fellows back in ethiopia.

The Python, I really appreciate your courage. We need in millions to replicate person like you. You are so positive. I will for sure join your initiation with out any hesitation. In fact I am seriously collecting scientific literatures and lecture slides to send to the University which I used to teach. One time, we will devise a way and send educational materials in more organized manner.

Love wins!
