Help Us - Help You
Our goal is to serve self-directed visionary students.
We are a long way from doing that as well as can be done.
You will notice the "How To Take A Class' page - that was a response to an e-mail from a frustrated student. There were probably several students that left BFU over the same frustration - and never let us know. It will be better when we can figure out a simpler class structure, but in the meantime providing instructions was required.
Our resources are very limited - but our goals are directed toward you, the student. BFU is evolving as quickly as we can address our short comings, but we need your help.
If you have an idea on a new class, if you are encountering problems accessing any feature, in fact if you have any feed back at all, please let us know. We know you hear this sort of thing all the time from bureaucracies - who then respond with inappropriate form letters.
We will respond, after we have considered and addressed any problems or opportunities. Our reply will be personal - you can again then let us know how we perform if you wish.
It makes sense to have students grade the school. Do it right here in the comments for all to see. Students use the services of their college - they should be in charge.
We have no plans to build a library, the Internet provides that. We do not intend to become accredited - we would have to take the free out of Bastiat Free University to do that. We will not conform to others visions of what a university should be.
What we will continue to do is strive to provide college level learning. Our target students are those that desire to prepare for a world that is already far different than standard formal education acknowledges.
- We will make mistakes - please point them out.
- Some of our systems will fail - please report problems encountered quickly.
- We will miss opportunities to serve our students - please share your ideas.
We will try not only to listen, but to understand.
After your experiences with the more formal industrial age education we can understand your doubts of our sincerity, we sometimes doubt ourselves.
We can leave this here:
If you want to direct your own education and take responsibility for your own learning - we want to help.
Help Us - Help You by letting us know where we need to improve.
Right now you can tell us in the comments what frustrates you most about BFU, or in general on the Internet.
Obviously inept and uncaring customer service has troubled me.
