Profile

Personal statement

"What you know is more important than where or how you learned it." Assessing learning, no matter how it was obtained, is the key to academic programs. We focus on serving those historically underserved in higher education, and OER is a valuable tool in this endeavor. With freely accessible learning resources and valid and low-cost assessments, learners can obtain real credentials flexibly and without going into tens of thousands of dollars of debt.
