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

Hi Kellie Marks ! Thank you for your comment. The idea with the videos are exactly this. We are looking for more volunteers. If you know someone who could help, please let us know. 

About Sean's comment, while I totally agree with it, I think for colleges the problem is more complex. It involves culture and people's perception. People tend to think that Community Colleges offer a low level quality education.  They believe they are paying more for something better.

Hi Kellie Marks ! I didn't know about the Nassau Community College program. Thank you very much for sharing. This is an amazing initiative. I have sent them an email. I will also post about it on our Facebook Page. Thanks again.

Izabela commented on MIT to offer Free Online Classes which lead to a Degree

Hi Kellie Marks  ! Making online education accessible and attractive to lower income students is certainly a big challenge. There are several roadblocks to be overcome. In my opinion, the two main problems are access to Internet service (as you mentioned) and motivation (90 percent of students don’t finish their online courses).
