Transferable online credits

Postby Dave P. on Fri Jun 24, 2011 2:02 pm

One feature that I believe online institutions could use to greatly increase their market is easy course transferability. So many students at brick-and-mortar schools have to attend an extra year or two because the required courses fill up too quickly.

Is anyone aggressively pursuing this market niche? Just curious.

This is a great question, Dave. I think it is all too common students fall short in credits because a required course for their majors fill up.

I understand this is common, but am not sure what kind of niche does this exposes? Online schools can try to offer courses that mimic those fill-up-fast classes, but in most cases they are so specific to the college's curriculum / faculty / values, that this isn't always possible.
