Adam commented on EduPass - An online education cloud platform

Great idea Hermosa, the feature that immediately jumps out to me about your idea is that it leverages current infrastructure to create a tailored learning experience for each individual, based on their interests. I think that there is opportunity for you to expand the infrastructure beyond traditional institutions and incorporate online learning vehicles. Online learning such as Kahn or Coursera could be an important part of making a college degree accessible to a broader population. I agree with the comments regarding accreditation - and, I think that finding the right organization to partner with could help apply credits to a select number of these online course. It's not uncommon for colleges to recognize experiences such as military training towards college credits, I don't think this would be any different.  This organizational partner could serve as a clearing house, categorizing and validating available courses. 
I look forward to seeing how you grow and shape this idea!
