Built for My Family
Now Serving 5 Continents
World Class International Faculty Via Video Instruction

Walter P. Drake, Director Blue Marble Education Group: Blue Marble University, Panama College of Cell Science, Blue Marble University Medical SchoolIn creating Blue Marble University, I took great inspiration from Steve Jobs 2005 Commencement Address at Stanford University, and particularly this advice: “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma—which is living with the results of other peoples’ thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.” I took that to heart, and started Blue Marble University with a blank sheet of paper and thought about what I could do to create the very best virtual university that my son would be proud to attend in his college years… for my own family to use… and hopefully others may want to join us as well. Read more about Walter P. Drake HERE.

For “teaching faculty”, we rely primarily on world-renowned experts who have generously made their lectures and knowledge available to the world online. Internationally acclaimed faculty thus become our faculty for some courses and lectures. READ MORE about our Faculty.
