California’s online community college will represent a new vision for higher education when it launches next year and the online education field is watching to see whether it succeeds.
The new fully online college draws from a variety of sources, including public universities’ online degree programs, corporate worker training initiatives and programs at for-profit colleges. California plans to blend those existing influences to create something without precedent: A statewide, online-only public college focused on short, career-oriented certificates.
