TVPUniversity: This ongoing development is designed to provide the viewer with a strong foundation in the aims and proposals of the Venus Project. It will be logically structured into categories, sections and articles consisting of texts, video and audio from Jacque Fresco & Roxanne Meadows on each specific subject.
Short sections of text have been taken directly from Jacque Fresco's books "The Best That Money Can't Buy" and "Designing the Future" as well as our FAQ and Essay. At the end of each category there will be a self-assessment available should you wish to use it, these assessments are not visible to anyone but the person taking them.
TVPCommunity College now in development is one of our newest additions, and is a place where supporters of this direction can come to learn skills relevant to the global team developments within the TVPCommunity.
Our aim is to have community driven content, submitted from within the community of Audio & Video tutorials by those who work or have extensive skills within these fields so that others may learn from them at no cost in the comfort of their own homes, this is the future of community based learning and we welcome you to come and participate.
"The smarter we all are, the richer our lives will be" - Jacque Fresco.
A selection of free Audio & Video lessons in various fields of relevant study.
Content collated from free online sources as well as volunteer content created within the TVPCommunity.
We are in need of relevant Text, Audio & Video clips for each of the subjects/categories and sub categories in the index below that are relevant to those areas.
If you have specific Texts that you feel are relevant to any of the topics below please email them to TVPUniversity Text Submission, clearly indicating which section it is relevant to in the email.
