Agreed! @portlandhead: Web projects fail when decision makers don’t perceive a problem.

Why do online projects fail? Poor governance and unwillingness to address problems right from the start - http://t.co/ueo8yRQS

@walterbriggs Face-to-face, whole-person mentoring will still be valuable, but basic instruction will be unbundled. From sage to guide.

@walterbriggs I think the desired outcomes of “an education” are changing rapidly from your credentials to who you become over a lifetime.

@epersonae Parents, relatives, & counselors will advise against buying a whole degree. Who recommends a whole CD now? Buy songs, make a mix!

via web in reply to epersonae

@epersonae For instance, maximum payments of 10% of projected income for 10 years.

via web in reply to epersonae

@epersonae Agreed. The goal of helping people learn obfuscates the practice of giving loans to people who can’t repay. Like mortgages.

via web in reply to epersonae

@donbwhite Rather than diplomas, respected mentors in a field vet resources and assessments & provide credentials for that field. Unbundled.

via web in reply to donbwhite

@donbwhite College costs are high because people will pay. Once they understand the ROI and look for alternatives, net cost will go down.

via Socialite.app in reply to donbwhite

@epersonae Higher education is being unbundled as were the recording industry, libraries, and newspapers before. A new model is emerging.

via Socialite.app in reply to epersonae

@donbwhite Census data is averaged over time. At least you wouldn’t get a loan that takes 2 lifetimes to pay off. http://t.co/q7NtaUEI

via Socialite.app in reply to donbwhite

@epersonae Sure. It’s the same as giving mortgages to people who can’t make payments. Perhaps parents should be on the hook.

via web

@epersonae I went to a state school until my preferred school would give me a large scholarship. The plan worked. But that was years ago.

via web in reply to epersonae

@donbwhite How about a multiplier? You can get loans with payments of up to 10% of estimated income for 10 years. The data is there.

via web in reply to donbwhite

@epersonae That’s why the transformation from reputation to value may encourage using real data to make decisions. http://t.co/efRIkyEo

via web in reply to epersonae

@epersonae Good point. And colleges aren’t motivated to provide financial counseling because students might leave if they knew. Parents?

via web in reply to epersonae

Is this sacrilegious? Dear young adults with massive student loans: Why didn’t you go to one of the many good schools you could afford?
