Eric, Great post. This aligns with an interesting oucome of the interview I did (https://challenges.openideo.com/challenge/higher-ed/research/i-m-not-sure-i-want-an-education-i-won-t-be-paying-off-until-i-m-50). The student who didn't complete college said he liked the community but hated all the pre-requisites and "unnecessary" classes. My sense is some of those might have been poor quality. Maybe if they were better quality and he had had more support it would be less discouraging.
Good post Xiaofan - I'm working with a team that is trying to do the same thing. I agree with your complaints about the platform. I wish I could do an easy search of THIS challenge to see what has already been posted - and see my posts easily - I can see my conversations but not my original posts to research.
Glad you put this up Amy - I would have too - the first time I saw it I was excited about the Reinvention - and honestly I think that's what we really need to address - not just making education affordable but redesigning it so that students want to pay for it.
