  University Buys land, wait 5 years, sell it back for 2.5x profit...
Posted by: bjcheung77 - 1 hour ago - Forum: General Education-Related Discussion - No Replies

Well, essentially, that's what happened with the several acres of land that Gwynedd Mercy University did...  Essentially they bought it for $12.1 million in late 2018 and now flipping it for $31.5 million.  I wonder what really happened to their expansion plans as mentioned in the article, they're trying to bolster enrollment of existing programs and create new ones, they have some recent funding as well...

  Ed-Tech industry grows...
Posted by: bjcheung77 - 1 hour ago - Forum: General Education-Related Discussion - No Replies

Coursera, Duolingo, and a few of the ones in the top 10 I am familiar with... the others not so much... But wow, look at those billion dollar valuations!

Link: The Number of Ed-Tech Unicorns Grows, Fueled by Pandemic-Era Fundraising - Market Brief (edweek.org)

"The U.S. is home to more ed-tech unicorns than any other nation.

Of the 33 ed-tech unicorns, 15 are from the United States. Eight are from China. And six are based in India. The rest are made up of companies from Europe, Canada and Israel. "

Hmm... since the bulk of the board members here and the sister board are in the US, maybe we should start something! Together!

  Universal Technical Institute buys Concorde Career Colleges
Posted by: bjcheung77 - 1 hour ago - Forum: General Education-Related Discussion - No Replies

Yes... I get that they're growing the student base by purchasing other nationally accredited schools, but it seems they're expanding into Health Care with this purchase - they're trying a different industry vertical.  The previous acquisition (as per the article) was MIAT College of Technology and their other schools at the bottom of the article are all "automotive/technology based".

The list of colleges accepting cryptocurrency as payment for tuition and other fees are growing... and now they've added Bentley Univ.  In the article it also shows examples of a few that have started accepting this option of payment.

  Pearson acquires Mondly - Language Learning Platform
Posted by: bjcheung77 - 2 hours ago - Forum: General Education-Related Discussion - Replies (1)

Pearson is at it again, buying up the competition, this time it's Mondly.  I've not used their services before, but it should be a "competitor" to Duolingo and others, I think it's a viable alternative, for children/teens or those wanting to start off, the free versions and downloadable app for mobile devices are great beginner options.

  Ancient Greek - At Your Own Pace, looking for more Latin
Posted by: Library2HospitalChaplain - 2 hours ago - Forum: General Education-Related Discussion - Replies (1)

I have a teen who taught themselves enough Ancient Greek for reading the Iliad and the histories of Alexandros, Alexander the Great.

Randolph College has Ancient Greek I and II in both 4 credit summer intensives and 1 credit At Your Own Pace in semesters. Tuition for all undergraduate courses is $375 per credit hour if you want to learn Ancient Greek in either fashion. 

https://online.randolphcollege.edu/greek/ https://amyrcohen.com/courses/ 

I thought I would add this as an obscure credit option for anyone trying to learn "the classics" of education. 

I'm doing Biblical Hebrew through TAL Programs, Languages, Lashon HaKodesh Elementary 8 credits for $400 https://talprograms.org/languages/ and Coopersmith after I pass that exam Languages, Intermediate Biblical Hebrew (BIH-255) 3 credits for $150.00, https://www.coopersmithcc.net/shop/

Since TEL Learning is about to archive their Latin course, https://www.tellearning.org/product/latn-2105-latin-i/, does anyone know of another source for Latin credits as well?

  Need Help With Degree Planning
Posted by: ErGoAZTuck - 3 hours ago - Forum: Degree Planning Advice - Replies (7)

Hello everyone,

I am an international student. I can't physically attend campus courses for health reasons, and unfortunately, there is no online degree program in my country. To be honest, finding this forum is like finding a life save haha...

I plan to finish my bachelor's degree in 2-3 years, I prefer a major in math, physics, sociology, psychology, etc., but I'm still open to any other major. 

I have 3 questions about my degree plan, hope someone can help me.

1. The first question is about school recommendations; I have two requirements for my final graduate school, meet anyone will be ok. A reputation public university or has the same diploma as the campus student (not like Purdue Global). Btw, my total budget for a bachelor's degree is about 30k-40k USD.

My current school list is University of Florida, University of Michigan Flint, Arkansas State University, and Arizona State University.

2. I plan to get some cheap RA credits through ONU's your way plan and transfer to my final degree school. Has anyone transferred ONU's credit to the University of Florida before? I see UF can transfer up to 90 credits, but I'm not sure whether they can accept credits from ONU.

Besides ONU, do you have any other sources to get cheap RA credits that can transfer to schools like University of Florida or the University of Michigan, Flint.

3. Arkansas State University and ASU seem to accept ACE credits. Does anyone have any experience transferring them successfully?

I've been studying the forums for a week and am still a little confused about my degree plan and don't know where to start as a first step

Thank you all for your help!

Wow, he did it, a finish in 2022... Stephen Curry is now officially a college grad after starting the process back in 2006... 
He's not the only one, there are many that continue on with their education even though they've "made it big" in the NBA or another sport.  
Apparently, he majored in Sociology...back in the day, when I started, I had 5 different double majors I was interested in.
What are your majors/subjects you liked in college?  I took so many random courses, I changed majors so many times...

  Look for some cheap RA credits
Posted by: 1010101 - Today, 12:49 AM - Forum: Degree Planning Advice - Replies (2)

Hello guys. I probably need about 30 credits for computer + 30 general education credits to graduate now. I would like to ask if it is possible for me to take a subscription at UMPI and then transfer back to my current school. Do I need to submit any specific documents? Because I am an international student, I hope them would accept. Or are there any cheap RA credits, please tell. it's really important for me.?
