Getting Smart is acknowledging people and organizations making a difference with a series of back to school top 10 lists. During August we will run about 40 ‘best of’ lists, not in order, not exhaustive, just people we appreciate. Today we’re recognizing 10 higher education innovators.
Coursera: about 400 courses with more than 80 universities
edX: 60 courses with 28 universities
Udacity: about 30 courses
Western Governors University: pioneers in competency-based credits
StraighterLine: affordable gen-ed courses
Propero: Pearson’s low cost gen-ed solution
Minerva: planned next gen university for the world’s brightest students
Arizona State: the most innovative public university
We’re also a fan of dual enrollment and Early Colleges, so we like National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships and Jobs for the Future.
