Global University System

Thanks to Roman Schastlivtsev I searched for any similar ideas to ad-hoc education in scientific domain. I mean I looked through scientific publications. The stuff that I've found on the surface: Global University System.

From one of the available abstracts on this system:

The Global University System (GUS) is a worldwide initiative to create telecommunications infrastructure for access to educational resources across national and cultural boundaries for global peace. GUS aims to create a worldwide consortium of universities to provide the underdeveloped world with access to 21st Century education via Internet technologies.

The GUS works in the major regions of the globe with partnerships of higher education and healthcare institutions. Learners in these regions will be able to take their courses from member institutions around the world to receive a GUS degree. These learners and their professors from partner institutions will also form a global forum for exchange of ideas and information and for conducting collaborative research and development with emerging global GRID computer network technology. The aim is to achieve "education and healthcare for all," anywhere, anytime and at any pace.

A lot of ideas there seems to be great. But unfortuntely I have not found any progress on this activities (maybe I tryed in too glance way).
