Gates Grant to Help Georgia Tech Develop Online Courses

Friday, November 16, 2012

Colleges will offer courses to ACE for potential accreditation and Tech is studying this option, said Richard DeMillo, director of the institute’s Center for 21st Century Universities.

That credit review — combined with the type of courses Georgia Tech and others will develop through the Gates Foundation — unites the MOOC movement with the state and national completion agenda, a push to have more adults earn some type of certificate or degree beyond a high school diploma.

“These Gates Foundation awards address one of higher education’s most pressing problems: bending the cost curve and improving learning outcomes for introductory courses,” DeMillo said. “If we are successful, courses like these will be a shift in both quality and cost for the vast majority of American college students.”
