What comes to your mind Online Educationwhen I say

Computational Sciences?


Science is Online Educationall about observation and experiment. But some things are impractical to observe or conduct direct measurement. In such case, we use computer to simulate natural phenomena.

Undergraduate interdisciplinary program in computational sciences
Undergraduate Interdisciplinary Program in Computational Sciences

  • Numerical Analysis

  • Data Science (Big Data, Bioinformatics)

  • Graphics & Visualization


At seoul national university
At Seoul National University Sciences

  • Currently 30 students (5 with disability)

  • 2% quota in elite science and fine art high schools in Metropolitan Seoul (Admission of 30 students with disability every year)


MOOC Sciences


Online education
Online Education Sciences

  • For nondisabled people, it’s effectiveness can be debated and is an option

  • For people with disability, it can sometimes be the only solution

  • Assumptions:

    • Online education is a headache for established universities

    • 99% of Koreans are disabled when it comes to listening English lectures (language barrier)


Disability is diverse so there cannot be one size fits all solution but two important questions
Disability is diverse so there cannot be Sciencesone-size-fits-all solution.But two important questions:

  • How do you teach a blind person math?

    superb memory and logical

  • How do you teach a deaf person English?


Equations are two-dimensional Sciences

Qoltx new accessible solution
QoLTx Sciences: New accessible solution

  • Goal: To provide foundational courses for student with disability across the border

  • Starting with edX platform (Ruby and Python) and improving its accessibility

  • Making courses at precollege, freshman and sophomore levels (science, engineering and math)

  • Multilingual (Korean, English and Arabic)

  • Creating new jobs for people with disability

  • Off-line voluntary services (academic Peace Corps) to developing countries



My Vision and develop new technology.

By making online education accessible and multilingual, we might be able to help not only people with disability but also women in developing countries.


40 days across US and develop new technology.– Now or Never


But it took only 12 days to come back
