    I wonder how the curriculum framework, course content structure, and lecture materials will be assessed for appropriateness and accuracy for implementation in university teaching. Who will be the team responsible for auditing the delivered results? Perhaps the team needs to be supplemented or have a suitable plan for this issue to be more convincing.

    I have to take exception to this proposal and apparent attempt at deception. The Singularity Ambassador Certification program is a product of the Snet Ambassadors Education Guild and you have not had one iota to do with it. To state you are going to host such or by inference that you are associated is amazing. How did this come about? I would suggest to everyone involved with this proposal to carefully understand priciples in higher education and the need for honesty, transparency and upholding the highest standards. I do not think they are met in this proposal and it would be a shame to see reputations damaged.

    Awesome, No community will grow beyond the level of it education. Creating Olive Stack University is a step ahead of sharing SingularityNET knowledge as a default course to be enrolled for to unlock other courses is well though idea if I am correct about your intention of making singularityNET course a default course. I will suggest that there should be a reflective of where AI can be use in the Olive Stack University to automate some task on the LMS, for instance there may be an AI model created to test students capabilities before enrolling for a course and suggest some beginner courses if necessary this could be something like personalized recommendations judging from the test.  There may be other places where a model can be integrated to make the learning curve for students easier and a better experience. Looking forward to this program get support from the community.

    Focus on quality to improve viability

    Through the author's presentation, Olive Stack University is one of the leading universities in focusing on new technologies such as blockchain and tokenomics. It contains many expectations of young people when learning and being exposed to a high-tech environment. In reality, the feasibility is completely possible, along with obvious benefits that no one can think of.
    The most interesting thing I found was that the proposal identified the problem that needed to be solved - the team provided a specific solution and included project details. Very doable!
    What I want is for the team to focus on current quality, both in terms of the amount of continuously updated knowledge and the quality of education delivery to enhance the ability to survive and continue to grow. With the spearhead of Open Educational Resources and Open Source Learning Management System - I assess that the team can completely accomplish that.

    THE FEASIBILITY SHOULD BE CONSIDERED

    Desirabilty

    As technology develops, the community becomes increasingly interested in AI technology knowledge. The project meets the desire of the community to access official knowledge sources and open up new career opportunities.

    Usefulness

    It is a project to build lesson modules about the AI technology of SNET. The project helps enhance SNET's reputation and helps increase the community's knowledge of AI technology. That is also a premise for long-term education, supporting the creation of a workforce knowledgeable about technology. AI in the future.

    Feasibility

    I see that the members take on the core roles of the project. However, information about members should be transparent and show the specific experience they have achieved. That helps increase community trust in the project. The team also made good arguments about the vision and operation of the project. 

    Viability

    The project requires high technical requirements and a major in AI technology, so the staff must be capable of undertaking this work. The project requires a capital of 35,000 USD but does not have a detailed capital allocation table. The timelines should be more specifically presented. Teams should consider presenting milestones, costs, and deliverables in more detail.

    In particular, a suitable marketing program is necessary so that people interested in AI technology can participate.

    Learners should be consulted

    This proposal is large-scale and it deserves investment and serious implementation. If successful, it will bring great educational benefits. Olive Stack University will be one of the pioneer schools to share knowledge about SNET, it is especially good for the younger generation and will be contagious if the lessons have real value. On the other hand, it is also necessary to carefully create a survey for those who want to study to see if they are really interested in studying, and a survey after studying to evaluate the quality of the lesson. But the survey information will certainly be valuable to the team.

    Update knowledge, innovate transmission methods

    There are 2 members out of a total of 6 members whose identities have not been completely disclosed (personal photos have not been posted yet). My advice is to absolutely post photos and make your identity public as soon as possible. Because it will help the team in building trust in the community. This is transparency and assessment of desirability.
    Feasibility has been clearly shown in the 6 milestones. The tasks outlined by the team are probably also the members' professional strengths, so I do not hesitate to give maximum marks for feasibility.
    Viability is also a criterion I evaluate quite well with the organization of courses on STEM knowledge, blockchain technology...this knowledge is always extremely necessary for modern people.
    Besides, the team should also pay attention to continuously updating new knowledge and try to convey knowledge in the classroom in an interesting way to create excitement and attract new members to the classroom. It is a good way to maintain and further develop this proposal.
