Here’s an idea to free college: 100% asynchronous based courses (self-paced), yeah e-learning

eLearning 24-7

Each time, I do, the first thing that pops into my head is “e-learning” The second thing is “asynchronous based” – i.e. self-paced learning. There are some (low though) MOOCs that are asynchronous based, and based on some talks I had with students who went through them – they loved em. I virtually never talk politics, not in posts or speaking for sure, but I’ll say it here – I’m a liberal. Real world applications. .
