Wanhao University: What is it?
It's a collaborative effort and vision of Wanhao's Gary Chen, myself, and a growing list of enthusiastic people who want to further the enjoyment and viability in business, education, and other areas of interest with 3D printing by offering useful resources and support to achieve this goal.
Wanhao is established as one of the most recognizable names in 3D printing today and with a range of 9+ printer models and a fast growing community support structure- which means great tidings for new and old users, enthusiasts and businesses alike.
Training In The Form Of Online Courses:
Online courses revolutionize formal education, and have opened a new genre of outreach on cultural and scientific topics, and in our case, 3D printing. These courses deliver a series of lessons to a web browser or mobile device, to be conveniently accessed anytime, anyplace.
It’s a directed learning process, comprised of educational information (articles, videos, images, web links), communication (messaging, discussion forums) and some way to measure students’ achievement.
Integrated Community Structure:
I've integrated a well rounded community structure people can be familiar with, very much like Facebook in feel and use. Students (Lets call them Learners) and teachers (Lets say experts) can communicate and with this function improve and expand the concept in real time through this interaction.
Growth Within YOUR Community:
Schools. Libraries. Makerspaces.
noun: makerspace; plural noun: makerspaces
A place in which people with shared interests, especially in computing or technology, can gather to work on projects while sharing ideas, equipment, and knowledge.
"the makerspace is equipped with 3D printers, laser cutters, various milling devices, and more;"
The forward approach here is to provide good solutions to help you and your local community facilitate the creation and maintenance of a place to gather and explore, learn, create, and enjoy an environment that emphasizes on "not sweating the small stuff". Part of those solutions include: Educational and Business Programs tailored to suit your individual and community needs.
.Yes, competition! The people we meet are truly innovative, inspiring, and just plain great to know! By creating an environment and system that promotes competition everyone wins- and it gives the people something to be proud of. This excites us too because it's not just "for the pros". Without giving away too much at the start, lets just say anyone can participate in the different things we have planned for you!
Join our community, and bring your ideas to the table! There is even a group devoted to community discussion about these features!
