Schools, colleges in USA begin with ‘course-sharing’

Admissions into schools and colleges are constantly dwindling in the USA, amidst this, they have come up with a new experiment of ‘course-sharing’, in which, schools have started working together by making teams, so that the students can be offered quality courses at concessional rates. By doing this, the schools believe, the number of students will augment, and the school’s presence will remain.

Jeffery Dawking, President, Adrian College, said that during the last 2 years, companies have come up with job opportunities at a large scale in 17 different fields including those of computers, science, web designing, cyber safety. As a result, new courses in these fields are being designed. They are also being shared and made public. Therefore, course-sharing has developed as a business model.

In a survey conducted by American Association of College and University, it has been found out that people with an arts degree learn better skills at jobs, which is also believed by more than half of the employers. In the wake of this, the curriculum to career innovation institute has designed a course to connect students who are taught in colleges to get jobs in a better way, which has been signed by more than 50 colleges and universities.

It is since 2018 that the demands to include hundreds of colleges into the course-sharing networks have been raised. Michigan’s Rochester University is offering 7 programmes of course-sharing, which include digital marketing, computer science, and certified financial planning. Similarly, other colleges and universities are running course-sharing programmes which are attracting the students.
