In the United States, the average cost of tuition, with fees, at a private, non-profit, 4-year university is nearly $40,000. Prestigious schools may charge that much in a single year.
Even an in-state public tuition cost in the U.S. is near $10,000 for a 4-year degree, without room and board, for the first time in history.
A handful of countries, such as Sweden, Norway, and France, offer a virtually free college tuition experience. Some countries even offer free tuition to international students.
Open-source platforms change educational opportunities and vocational training resources for one simple reason: they equalize the playing field.
Everyone has access, not just those who are approved for access.
How You Can Help to Promote Open-Source Learning
Open-source learning is a process that allows anyone to use the power of the internet to their own benefit. You can create your own curriculum, develop learning experiences, and even create interactive materials from available resources.
Then you can share what you’ve developed with everyone.
The best way you can help is to start acting on the thoughts that you have. When we listen to our thoughts, we can do almost anything. We become implementers.
Except we don’t follow through on those thoughts, do we?
How many times have you thought about wanting a car to get you home instead of walking or taking the bus, even if it means having to pay more? That’s Uber.
Or how many times have you thought about what it would be like if you could have a remote control that fast-forwards you through the boring parts of life? That’s the movie Click.
Knowing what ideas will stick and which will not – that is the toughest part of being an implementer. We don’t want to invest time and resources into an idea that will fail.
That’s why you can also promote open-source learning by taking the next step.
Join a Community That Encourages Idea Development and Discussion
Technology is always going to advance. Wealth will always be determined through a process of disruption.
What we can do is join together in a free, welcoming community where ideas are discussed openly and honestly. This gives each idea the exposure it needs to see if it has the power to benefit us all.
Then together, we can become the implementers and act upon the best of those ideas. We can do this because of the nature of open-source learning, which offers the same resources to every person.
Unless we are willing to change, the world is going to leave us behind. We’ll be following those with power, feasting on the scraps of whatever is left after the rich few have their fill.
We need a better way. We must redirect our energy toward something that benefits us all.
The invitation is open. Come join our community, so that together, we can all have access to the education and training needed for success.
Become an implementer.
