Lecture delivery method is from Columbia University via the Internet with streaming media or download options. Lectures are asynchronous, recorded, posted to the Internet on the scheduled day of class. Students interact with Professors and teaching assistants primarily by way of e-mail, fax, and phone. Homework assignments are retrieved via the Internet. Submissions are uploaded or faxed. Students choose proctors, subject to CVN approval, to monitor their test-taking. The exams may be taken at one's workplace or other suitable venue. On the day of the exam, and at the time specified by the instructor, the student's proctor will be able to download and print out the exam to be administered. After the test period is over, the proctor faxes the finished exam to Columbia University. Students in this distance learning programme are fully-matriculated, take the same classes as on-campus students, do the same homework, and take the same exams. Their degrees, transcripts, and diplomas are the same as their in-residence, dorm-dwelling counterparts'. On graduation day, distance-ed scholars get to promenade down the College Walk with all other Columbia students to acknowledge their academic accomplishments and to procure their credentials.

Students can be company-sponsored; tuition vouchers are accepted.

(As a former Columbia U student, I will say that it holds an ever-abiding place of special-ness in my memory banks.)

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
