Chronicle of Higher Education: New Venture Will Offer Free Courses That Students Can Take for College Credit

Chronicle of Higher Education: New Venture Will Offer Free Courses That Students Can Take for College Credit. “The venture, being formally unveiled on Wednesday [This was last Wednesday -TJC], includes a catalog of online courses in more than 40 subjects that were developed by academics affiliated with major universities across the country. Leaders of the Modern States Education Alliance, the New York City philanthropy behind the project, call it an “on ramp” to college. The courses are free to anyone who wants to use them, but were designed especially for students who can use this alternative approach to earn traditional academic credits through the Advanced Placement or College Level Examination Program exams, administered by the College Board.”
