This was a very helpful experience. I am so thrilled to know that if i ever need help it is just a click away. I was able to grasp many blurry subjects to me and the tutor cleared them up for me. Thanks for everything!
With StraighterLine what more could a military spouse ask for? Friendly support, cheap prices in comparison to traditional college credits per hour, you can do your coursework at home and still have time to attend to both your family and the duties that come from being a military spouse.
Finally, another product has just come out ... called StraighterLine that could really change the labor model in education in very disruptive fashion that could allow for far more one-on-one time for students with teachers.
I am not here to hawk StraighterLine or its courses, but rather to say more power to universities who embrace the position that 'we want to offer quality degrees at a low cost - no matter who does the teaching, be it a for-profit provider, the institution itself, or a series of different providers, each good at what it does.'
StraighterLine threatens the most profitable piece of a conglomerate business: freshman lectures, higher education's equivalent of the classified section. If enough students defect to companies like StraighterLine, the higher education industry faces the unbundling of the business model on which the current system is built.
