We are making college more affordable by reducing costs and enhancing “learning productivity” (shortened time-to-completion, fewer repeated classes, and the like).
Testing the use of free, open source instructional in courses to reduce student textbook costs. Last spring’s MOST pilot saved students in 11 classes more than $130,000.
Continuing the system-wide effort to redesign high-enrollment, entry-level courses. The average reported savings for fully implemented redesigns has been 34%.
Seeking funding for a research and development project aimed at enhancing students’ financial literacy (students’ financial management attitudes and behaviors).
Testing developmental learning opportunities that allow students to acquire needed knowledge/skills but don’t add substantially to college cost or time-to-completion.
