This idea was co-created at the OpenIDEO Vienna Chapter Ideation Jam

Instead of choosing just a major, students choose in addition problems from the local community they wish to work on. Problems would come from the community and organisations in the community. Defining the specific problem would be part of the process.

Students work across disciplines and tackle problems with the community in a collaborative way. Problem Solving would be part of of the curriculum. Students receive money to implement solutions to the problem.

Who is your idea designed for and how does it reimagine higher education to support the needs of tomorrow?

Generally all students

This idea emerged from:

  • An OpenIDEO outpost or chapter

What skills, input or guidance from the OpenIDEO community would be most helpful in building out or refining your idea?

This idea is generally vague at the moment. It would be great to flesh out some more details to this concept.

A friend of mine is now graduated from the online education program. He told me about their learning program, advance courses and innovative technologies, there are many courses and experienced faculty who teach you better than other academics teachers. Online education is very useful for all learners who want to grow fast and easily with short time. After graduation, he got a job in a big firm with cheerful life.
