Abraham commented on Freemium + Open Source = Freemium Source Education

Alexandra, 

Thanks for the feedback. Ideally it would be part of the university, however individual organization are certainly welcome to volunteer their sponsorship/project leaders. This will only bring them goodwill and allow students to attain a better understanding of course material at a lower cost since an educator/professor would need not be hired.

Joanna, 

Sorry for the late reply. I attend the University of Texas at Austin and am pursuing a degree in Management Information Systems. I understand that the sponsorship might be difficult to replicate across all levels, however the concept should remain somewhat stagnant. This will help the students better understand the material that they are provided. Now I know that History might be one of those where sponsorship could be hard to replicate, but there could be an online option to further reduce the cost of a student enrolling in the course.

Hello Patricio,

Yes! This is what I had in mind as students get to the upper division course work. Some classes, however, will be charged at different rates as they would encompass popular topics and professors to teach. This will help the educational institution to collect revenue dependent on the quality of their servcies, as well as allowing students too save money on courses they are not too enthusiastic about but splurging a bit on the ones that are!!

Thanks for the link to making the User Experience Map. I will definitely utilize it and upload that soon. This will make it easier to follow my thought process behind my idea.
