Support Academic Square

 Academic Square was launched  in December 2017 because it believed that leading universities could make an important contribution to expanding access to educational resources through the use of technology. From the start, the courses available for millions of you, from 26 state provinces  around Tanzania, have watched them on this website .

Sharing my own course online has been one of the most exhilarating and transformative experiences of my teaching career and the interactions I’ve had with many of you via email have had an impact on my on-campus instruction in more ways than I would have imagined possible. Other Academic Square Courses professors have had similar experiences and collectively we believe deeply in the continued promise of open education.

We know you do too. You write to us in great numbers and tell us that our online courses have had an impact on your lives as students, educators, and lifelong learners. And you ask us over and over again to “please post more courses!”

Providing  access to Academic Square courses requires significant resources. 

Please help us fulfill the promise of Academic Square open education by donating to Academic Square Courses in any way you can. Every gift, no matter what size, will make a difference.

Thank you for your commitment to Academic Square Courses.

With my very best wishes,

Nickas G. Msemwa
