Sheela commented on GO COMMUNITY (Updated 12/07/2015)

This is such a great idea. I completely agree with you. Students often look down upon the idea of taking classes at a community college, but most core classes are standard throughout universities, and taking the first two years of school at a community college could save a large sum of money. We should definitely be looking at trying to improve the idea and opinion of community college, as there have been numerous people who have achieved success with a community college degree.

Sheela commented on Tarzan and his Tiny Home for College

This is really awesome to read about! Finding new, creative, and sustainable ways of living has been becoming more prevalent in years past, and the fact that someone has used this as a way to help ensure he comes out of school is inspiring. Housing like this should be more available to students. Not only does it effectively save money, but it allows for a more sustainable lifestyle as well.

Sheela commented on Open Course Ware for Credit

This is a really great idea and do believe that this could lower the costs of higher education greatly. I was just wondering if you've thought about thinking of a way to increase accessibility as well? Currently this is idea is dependent on whether students have access to a computer and internet, but what if you are unable to acquire those things?
